The World Health Organization has announced the adoption of the new Global Strategy on the Elimination of Cervical Cancer. As the 73rd World Health Assembly was held virtually and focused on the Covid-19- pandemic, other health resolutions such as the one on cervical cancer entered a silence procedure. This procedure has now come to an end.
To assist our members around the world in reaching out to media outlets in their countries once the announcement is official, UICC has prepared a draft news release and talking points. For communication on social media, there is a short video produced by the Moonshine Film Agency, which explains the situation, the challenges and what needs to be done.
