A WORLD WITHOUT CERVICAL CANCER DEATHS IS POSSIBLE.
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 ensuring the elimination of cervical cancer through advocacy, partnership, and knowledge-sharing, enabling equitable access to effective prevention and care.
November 17th marks the third anniversary of the launch of the Global strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem by the World Health Organization (WHO). On this day, we celebrate progress toward ensuring that women everywhere can access effective cervical cancer prevention and treatment, while contemplating the sizable challenges standing in the way - including a persistent lack of financial support.
Read our new blog reflecting on this important milestone and what our funding analysis - and the context - says about where this unprecedented global opportunity might be headed.
TogetHER is fighting to ensure the achievement of global commitments to accelerate the end of cervical cancer. We can't overcome the obstacles that stand in the way - including stigma, a lack of coordination, and a dearth of financial and political resources - by ourselves.
That's why we're launching our Fall Campaign, which we're calling NovembHER. We'll be showcasing our work to combat cervical cancer on multiple fronts and highlighting our impact over the course of the month.
Your contributions can make all the difference. Please visit our campaign site to check out a fantastic new video summarizing some of TogetHER's key projects and read our Impact Report to learn more about why - and how - we are working TogetHER to end this preventable cancer.
TogetHER for Health publishes an annual analysis of funding for cervical cancer prevention in low-income countries (LICs) and lower middle-income countries (LMICs).
Our newest report summarizes investments in HPV immunization and cervical cancer screening and treatment in LICs and LMICs from 2018 through 2022. Read the latest report!
In 2023, we’ve been giving our supporters the opportunity to get to know the people behind TogetHER for Health!
Our final Staff Spotlight of 2023 features our Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Kathy Vizas. Kathy’s contributions to TogetHER couldn’t be more essential - in fact, she’s one of the people who got us off the ground. In this blog, you’ll hear from Kathy herself about what inspired her to kickstart a new organization to take on cervical cancer at the global level, how she spends her free time, and who she most admires.
