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.
Our newest installment in our series of retrospective interviews with leaders in global cervical cancer prevention features Elizabeth Mbuthia, Co-Founding member of Women 4 Cancer.
Elizabeth discusses the challenges COVID-19 has presented for cervical health programs in Kenya, and how her organization has sustained its commitment to safeguarding women's health.

TogetHER for Health invites you to join our webinar with team members from Scope Impact and Kilele Health Association to discuss the Kizazi Chetu campaign in Kenya.
In this installment, we will share achievements, insights and learnings from a communications campaign that TogetHER and our partners at Scope Impact developed earlier this year: Kizazi Chetu, which means ‘Our Generation’ in Kiswahili. We’ll also share plans for the next iteration of this campaign, including working with partners at Kilele Health and the Matibabu Foundation, and share how you can be involved.
In the months following the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, TogetHER reached out to leaders in global cervical cancer control to discuss challenges and provide their perspectives on COVID-19’s immediate impact on programs to safeguard women’s health in low-resource settings.
TogetHER asked a select few participants in last year’s interviews to revisit the topic and provide perspectives on how their own work has changed in the last year. Our first installment of this retrospective series features Ellen Starr, Executive Director of Grounds for Health, who discussed how her organization has adapted its programs to expand services to women while introducing innovative new cervical cancer prevention interventions.
TogetHER is proud to announce that we’re taking submissions for our second round of grants through our Cervical Cancer Grants Program, first initiated in 2019, to generate evidence and lessons to improve understanding and foster best practices for high-quality cervical cancer prevention in low- and middle-income countries.
This current round of the Program will provide funding for two tracks:
- Track 1 aims to improve demand-side interventions to increase uptake of all cervical cancer prevention services.
- Track 2 aims to support supply-side interventions to accelerate adoption of improved technologies in cervical cancer prevention.
TogetHER has compiled questions from parties interested in submitting projects for funding through the Program. Compiled questions and responses can be accessed here.
TogetHER will award a total of two grants, each with a maximum budget of $25,000 USD. Proposals should be submitted by email to email@example.com no later than 6pm EST on Friday, October 29th. More about the Program and the submission process here; the Request for Proposals itself can be viewed here.
The World Health Organization launched the Cervical Cancer Elimination Initiative Knowledge Repository to support the implementation of the Global Strategy by Member States. The Repository is a web-based platform compiling relevant guidance and information from a variety of sources to guide cervical cancer elimination efforts.
TogetHER for Health is here to ensure that commitments to eliminate cervical cancer are realized. It’s in our name: we work TogetHER with partners around the globe because we cannot do this alone, and we want to invite new partners to join our cause.
Read more about how new partnerships and support can enhance our efforts, and join our cause to save women's lives. TogetHER won’t rest until the effort to end cervical cancer everywhere has the resources, innovative ideas, and strategic direction it needs.
