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.
International Women’s Day is a fitting day to announce the newest recipients of our Grants Program, two projects out of many submissions that we believe will have the most profound impact on efforts to save women’s lives from cervical cancer. This cycle’s awardees are Grounds for Health and Women Together Global.
The most recent entry in TogetHER's ongoing webinar series focused on the collaboration between the Elekta Foundation, the Rwanda Biomedical Centre, Society For Family Health and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).
Together their pilot project has screened 20,000 Rwandan women for HPV and treated several hundred through Rwanda's health system. Click here to learn more about this fantastic joint project's contributions working toward a joint vision of cervical cancer elimination.
TogetHER’s 2022 Year in Review summarizes our efforts to support the unprecedented goal of cervical cancer elimination.
Our last year saw us demanding accountability by funders and policymakers for their commitments to WHO’s cervical cancer elimination strategy, investing in innovative programs that can bring prevention to scale, and leveraging partnerships from rural Alabama to the streets of Nairobi, bridging the gap between the dream of elimination and the reality of lives saved.

Alabama has among the highest death rates from cervical cancer in the U.S., even though it's almost totally preventable. Cervical cancer mortality rates track nearly 50% higher in Alabama than in the rest of the country.
Operation Wipe Out is a statewide coalition tackling cervical cancer head-on and putting Alabama on the road to eliminating cervical cancer as a public health problem. By harnessing the unique capabilities of our multisectoral collaboration, we can reach more women with information and services and start saving lives.
Our new Operation Wipe Out site provides information on cervical cancer and links to prevention resources in Alabama.
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.
