Held in room Castillo A5, level B
Workshop organised by:
In November 2015 Cervical Cancer Action (CCA) launched a five-year initiative called the Cervical Cancer Prevention Initiative (CCPI) with the vision to expand and scale up global efforts to prevent cervical cancer in low- and lower-middle income countries over the next five years. The CCPI is an association of partners with the goal to ensure that all young adolescent girls receive the HPV vaccine and every woman is screened at least once between the ages of 30 and 49—and that she has access to pre-cancer treatment when necessary.
This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for cancer leaders around the world to exchange knowledge, skills and experience on current efforts in low- and middle-income countries to increase HPV vaccine and cervical cancer screening rates. Cancer leaders will work together to create immediate concrete steps on how to work more effectively together and forge the appropriate collaborations to scale up these critical prevention services. They will share local and national HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening case studies and identify areas to build political commitment, increase investment, integrate with other health services, improve communication strategies, establish systems to monitor and track coverage, and encourage innovation and shared learning.
