WHO’s Global Strategy to Accelerate the Elimination of Cervical Cancer has been launched which delineates three pivotal steps: vaccination, screening and treatment.
Successful implementation of all the three steps could decrease over 40% of the new cases of the disease and 5 million related deaths by the year 2050.
This is a historic development as this is the first time that 194 countries commit to eliminate cancer with the adoption of a resolution at this year’s World Health Assembly. Meeting the following targets by 2030 will pave way for elimination:
- 90% of girls fully vaccinated with the HPV vaccine by age 15
- 70% of women screened with a high-performance test by age 35 and again by 45
- 90% of women found to have cervical disease given treatment… (WHO, November 17, 2020)
