HPV and Cervical Cancer Curriculum

Professional Education to improve cervical cancer prevention worldwide

  • HPV vaccines and new diagnostic and screening tools have the potential to make cervical cancer largely a disease of the past.
  • Lack of appropriate professional knowledge has recurrently been identified as one of the major hindrances to the implementation of national cancer control programmes and a contributing factor to late access to diagnosis and treatment.
  • Knowledge transfer between professionals and to a lay audience is critical for long-term sustainability 

A contribution to tackling these challenges is the UICC HPV and Cervical Cancer Curriculum.
