Ending Cervical Cancer in Canada is Possible

Young Girl The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is calling on partners in health care and communities across Canada to end cervical cancer in Canada by 2040. The Partnership is leading the development and implementation of a Canadian plan to achieve the World Health Organization (WHO)’s elimination goal in this country. The plan is to reach full HPV vaccination of boys and girls; to move to primary HPV testing plus offer self-sampling in cervical screening programs; and to ensure rigorous follow up when abnormalities are identified. This will advance women’s health and lead to the elimination of cervical cancer in Canada by 2040. Read more at partnershipagainstcancer.ca/cervical.
