Cervical Cancer Elimination

In honor of gynaecological cancer awareness month, our September cancer lecture focused on cervical cancer elimination. 

In May 2018, the WHO Director-General announced a global call for action to eliminate cervical cancer, underscoring renewed political will to make elimination a reality and calling for all stakeholders to unite behind this common goal. In August 2020 the World Health Assembly adopted the Global Strategy for cervical cancer elimination. 

Almost a year later, our panel spoke on the steps and challenges towards eliminating cervical cancer as a public health problem.
