Join the discussion
This fourth round table will show the way to accelerate action against cervical cancer, highlighting success factors particularly from African countries that face the highest burden of this disease.
It is well-timed as ministers, partners and implementers are coming together to leverage existing resources and knowledge and learn from exciting new strategies to scale-up cervical cancer control programs.
Building on the success of our two previous roundtables, we hope to catalyze access to new financial and technical opportunities towards the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health concern by 2030.
- Elimination of cervical cancer: ongoing process under the leadership of WHO
- HPV vaccination: success factors and challenges
- Cervical cancer in women living with HIV : screening and treatment
