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.
Q&A Conversation with TogetHER for Health and Population Services International
Effective sexual and reproductive health (SRH) programs look beyond the window in which women are most likely to bear children, widening the perspective to adolescent health and the sexual health of women in their later years. Efforts to combat cervical cancer through effective prevention tools such as HPV vaccines and cervical screening and treatment can be instructive in understanding such a "life-course" approach to SRH.
The Knowledge SUCCESS project - coordinated by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs and funded by USAID - sat with TogetHER for Health's Heather White and Eva Lathrop of our member organization Population Services International (PSI) to talk cervical cancer prevention in the context of a life-course health continuum.
Unitaid and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) recently summarized the results of a two-year project to increase access to lifesaving treatment for cervical precancer in low- and middle-income countries.(LMICs).
We're excited to see such access-focused partnerships not only strengthening what we know about what works, but also accelerating cervical cancer elimination efforts by reducing financial and logistical barriers.
On Wednesday, May 11th, TogetHER for Health gathered to celebrate five years of advocacy and action to end cervical cancer with the people who play critical roles in our movement.
Our Race to None event on May 11th featured the voices and perspectives of our partners and champions from around the world. The event is available for viewing on our campaign site.
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.
