Cervical Cancer Elimination series - Estimating and responding to the suffering of women with cervical cancer: stimulating overdue action

Overview

Cervical cancer is one of the gravest threats to women’s well-being and lives worldwide, despite being a preventable disease. One woman dies from this cancer every two minutes. New data by World Health Organization to be published in June 2021 quantify for the first time that women with cervical cancer typically experience suffering that is more complex and severe than that caused by other serious illnesses.

Knowing the most common and severe types of suffering of people affected by cervical cancer, patients and their primary family caregivers, is the first step to addressing the horrifying unmet needs, especially for those living in low- and middle-income countries where access to palliative care remains rare.
