Over 340,000 women die every year from cervical cancer. It is the 4th most common cancer among women. However, it has its greatest impact on the poor, with 90% of new cases and deaths occurring in low and middle-income countries. This is a horrible tragedy and a preventable one. We know how to prevent, detect and treat this disease. This panel of global experts will share how we can address this neglected public health and humanitarian challenge. Join CUGH in our efforts to eliminate cervical cancer world-wide.
