Eliminating Cervical Cancer in Low-Resource Settings

Expert Convening: Creating Recommendations for Locally Driven Solutions to Eliminate Cervical Cancer

Women Deliver 2019 Conference

WHO has called for the elimination of cervical cancer, which affects more than 500,000 women worldwide. In 2015, 270,000 women died from cervical cancer – 90% of whom were from low- and middle-income countries - even though it is largely preventable.

Join Abt Associates, the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, Global Diagnostic Imaging, Healthcare IT and Radiation Therapy Trade Association (DITTA), Pathfinder International, PATH and other partners for an expert convening and workshop with policy makers, health care providers, multilateral agencies, NGOs, private sector representatives and advocates on eliminating cervical cancer.

Participants’ input will inform development of recommendations to support implementation of local solutions to strengthen the continuum of carefrom prevention to treatmentin low-resource settings.
