In 2018, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 570,000 women worldwide were diagnosed with cervical cancer. A shocking 311,000 women died of the disease. More than 80% of them were from low- and middle-income countries. While high-level institutions including the WHO are calling for action, it is crucial to understand the research, scientific advances, policy implementation considerations, and strategic coordination that are needed to reduce cervical cancer at the local and global level. A whole of society approach is required to reduce this disease, a preventable and treatable malignancy. This three-part webinar series brings together experts from the fields of research, clinical care, and policy, to debate and discuss what it will take to effectively reduce the global cervical cancer burden.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Boston University School of Medicine and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health. Boston University School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
