Mobilizing the world TO END 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.



The connection between cervical cancer and HIV/AIDS – both preventable diseases – has been well-documented. New global estimates show that women living with HIV are six times more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer.

On December 1st, TogetHER joins the global community to mark World AIDS Day, acknowledging progress – and continued challenges – in the fight against HIV and AIDS, a battle closely linked to efforts to eliminate cervical cancer.

The impact of COVID-19 on global cervical cancer prevention efforts has been wide-ranging, with unclear long-term ramifications. Our TogetHER Interview series provides an opportunity for key leaders in global cervical cancer control to discuss current challenges and provide perspective on where the field needs to go from here.

Read more from global leaders at Grounds for Health, Pathfinder International, Population Services International, PCI/Global Communities, PATHJhpiego, and Basic Health International.

And, get country-level perspectives from Pathfinder International (Ethiopia), Women 4 Cancer (Kenya), The Lily Project (Nicaragua), the Cervical Cancer Prevention and Training Centre in Catholic Hospital (Ghana), and Prof. Groesbeck Parham from the University of North Carolina/University of Zambia.

TogetHER is proud to release our second annual report on estimates of funding for cervical cancer prevention programs in low- and lower middle-income countries. This project provides important context for global elimination efforts by highlighting the critical investments being made by funders today, while providing a baseline for advocacy to continue to fill the substantial financial gap if we’re going to seriously discuss ending cervical cancer deaths.

TogetHER for Health supports our colleagues on the frontlines of patient care, in cervical cancer prevention and sexual and reproductive health care more broadly, to effectively manage their work during the pandemic.

We have collected resources to support health workers during this critical time.

This resource list has been updated in August of 2020 to incorporate new knowledge and insights.
