Abstract:In the Netherlands breast cancer and cervical cancer are getting a lot of attention. Different prevention facilities and services are available for all women at risk. For example a national screening programme, information and special polyclinics in hospitals. In Peru breast and especially cervical cancer are also a problem. However only few prevention activities are common there. Hospital EsSalud in Cusco, Peru, treats a lot of women with a gynaecological cancer, but they do not have any prevention services. This is not improving the situation for women to survive this kind of diseases. With this research the situation and obstacles in Peru around the prevention of breast and cervical cancer and the Dutch development of prevention is analyzed. This to see whether it is possible to use insights of the Dutch situation to stimulate the Peruvian situation, focused on Cusco. But different countries means different cultures. These cultures, focused on gender, attitudes and beliefs were also kept in mind when giving recommendations. To find out at which point both countries are, the barrier model is used. Conclusion of the situation in Peru is that they are stuck at the last barrier of the barrier model in the case of prevention; from the decision making agenda to the implementation agenda
