TogetHER has joined a group of 20 organizations calling on the new administration to build on current commitments to eliminate cervical cancer through coordinated efforts to promote HPV vaccination, as well as cervical screening and treatment.

TogetHER and Cervical Cancer Action for Elimination have co-authored a blog post detailing COVID-19’s impact on cervical cancer prevention efforts around the world and spotlighting ways in which programs are innovating to keep women protected.
