Mobilizing the world TO END CERVICAL CANCER
WE CAN SAVE WOMEN'S LIVES BY PREVENTING CERVICAL CANCER
The knowledge and technology exist to eliminate cervical cancer with effective, low-cost tools, even in the poorest parts of the world. TogetHER is a global partnership focused on bold action and mobilizing the world to end cervical cancer.
TogetHER has convened a group of 18 organizations to highlight contributions to global cervical cancer prevention and control by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and to call for new commitments to promote HPV vaccination and cervical screening and treatment across the world.
This year’s World Immunization Week theme of “Vaccines bring us closer” speaks to the desire of billions of people to re-establish the normal patterns of our pre-COVID-19 lives as soon as possible. Now more than ever, the power of vaccines to safeguard health is being celebrated. At the same time, as the world grapples with the challenge of ensuring global access to new vaccines against COVID-19, the human cost of insufficient investment in immunization programs has never been more apparent.
This new blog from our Executive Director Heather White touches on the need to invest in vaccine delivery - for both COVID-19 vaccines and HPV vaccines - to get the world back on track to cervical cancer elimination.

TogetHER for Health held a webinar on April 29th with researchers from the Single-dose HPV Vaccine Evaluation Consortium to review recently released evidence on the potential for single-dose HPV vaccination to inform global policy discussions and program guidance, as well as to raise awareness and understanding of its implications. The archived webinar can be viewed here.
TogetHER’s work continued in spite of 2020’s ongoing challenges. We focused on sharing the achievements of life-saving prevention and treatment programs, demanding action on their behalf, and creating new tools to catalyze increased political and financial support for cervical cancer interventions. Our 2020 Year in Review provides a recap of a tremendously productive year.
