At a conference in London in 2015, CCA and its partners launched Taking Cervical Cancer Prevention to Scale: Protecting All Women and Girls, a five-year global initiative to tackle the growing burden of cervical cancer in low- and lower-middle-income countries. Earlier this year the founders decided to shorten the name to The Cervical Cancer Prevention Initiative, or CCPI. Now, about one year post-London, we are providing an update. The report highlights CCPI accomplishments since London and explains our evolving understanding of how CCPI members will work together. It also celebrates the nascent efforts of our six working groups, along with exciting global milestones.
In November 2015 Cervical Cancer Action hosted a high-level meeting in London at which CCA and its partners launched a five-year global initiative to tackle the growing burden of cervical cancer in low- and lower-middle income countries. The Initiative seeks to increase collaboration, commitment, and investment to ensure that all women and girls are protected.
This report assesses global readiness to fight cervical cancer using the latest approaches and technologies, especially in regions where the disease is a common killer. It underscores the urgent need for the global community to prioritize cervical cancer prevention and control on global health and development agendas.
Seven years after our founding and eight years after HPV vaccines first became available, Cervical Cancer Action—a global partnership aimed at reducing cervical cancer in high-burden, low-income countries—offers a snapshot of our accomplishments to date and our vision of the work ahead.
