Please join PATH and our partners for drinks, hors d'oeuvres and a lively exploration of the changing environment for cervical cancer prevention! Cervical cancer is a serious disease, with nearly 500,000 new cases each year and about 275,000 deaths, primarily in low-resource settings. New screening and treatment approaches, along with new vaccines, may be the keys to improving cervical cancer prevention in the developing world. An expert panel from UNFPA, PAHO, and PATH will share up-to-date information on the disproportionate burden of cervical cancer, highlight new policies aimed at increasing access to life-saving technologies, present the latest data from Africa, Asia and Latin America on operational research into strategies for reaching girls with HPV vaccine and describe demonstration studies of a new, lower-cost, easier-to-use and highly sensitive HPV DNA test. An innovative, online Action Planner also will be introduced.
