Improved Awareness, Treatment, Prevention Efforts Can Reduce Number Of Women Dying From Cervical Cancer

Huffington Post: No One Needs to Die From Cervical Cancer
Leslie Mancuso, president and CEO of Jhpiego

“…Today, we know more about the origins and treatments for diseases, such as cervical cancer, than in any other time in history. That information — coupled with the efforts of clinicians, policymakers, and advocates from around the globe to increase awareness and access to prevention and treatment services — can lead us to a day where no women die from cervical cancer. … We must … double our efforts to develop the next generation of cutting-edge innovations and interventions to be put into practice today. … During Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, Jhpiego honors these champions and joins in the call that no one needs to die from cervical cancer today” (1/27).
