Cervical Cancer Action Global Coalition Report

Cervical Cancer Action Global Coalition Report

UN Building, New York City, April 13, 2011 — Today the Cervical Cancer Action coalition (CCA) launched a report assessing global readiness to fight cervical cancer using new approaches and new technologies, especially in regions where the disease is a common killer.

According to the WHO, more than half a million women contract the disease every year and about 275,000 women die from cervical cancer. Because prevention is within reach, these statistics represent a failure of national health systems to protect their women and girls. The gap is not a technological one – it is a gap of political will and resource management. Cervical cancer needs more attention, and more funding. Read Press Release Launch CCA Report
