TogetHER for Health Joins Asia-Pacific Women’s Cancer Coalition
June 6, 2023
We’re thrilled to announce that TogetHER for Health will be a founding partner of the APAC Women’s Cancer Coalition alongside Roche, CAPED India, Jhpiego, and Crowell & Moring International.
This new coalition seeks to drive change throughout the region and highlight the innovations and solutions with the highest potential to reduce incidence and mortality associated with breast and cervical cancer among women.
The coalition will initially focus on Thailand, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia, mirroring priorities set forth by the World Health Organization’s cancer initiatives. The coalition will conduct outreach in each of the focal countries to build national coalitions across multiple stakeholder groups (e.g., government leadership, civil society, academia, professional societies, the commercial sector) to accelerate achievement of key milestones in their national breast and cervical cancer control plans.
“We have the knowledge and technology to eliminate cervical cancer with effective, low-cost tools, such as vaccines against cancer-causing strains of Human papillomavirus (HPV) and routine screening and treatment of precancerous lesions,” said Heather White, executive director of TogetHER for Health.
