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.
Executive Director Heather White summarizes TogetHER's Cervical Cancer Awareness Month activities for January and discusses what's on tap for World Cancer Day, including a webinar on the rollout of thermal ablation for cervical cancer prevention in Botswana.
Two recent webinars TogetHER organized are archived on our site:
Global Investments in Cervical Cancer Prevention, Detection and Treatment (January 28th) - This webinar included presentations by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and Unitaid discussing their contributions to bringing low-cost, effective cervical cancer prevention to low-resource settings.
TogetHER’s Small Grants Program/World Cancer Day (February 4th) - This webinar featured presentations by Jhpiego's Botswana team and representation from Botswana's Ministry of Health and Wellness.
TogetHER has joined a group of 21 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. This collaboration - hosted on the NCD Alliance's website - also highlights Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, taking place in January.
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.
