PATH's statement on accelerating the elimination of cervical cancer at the 146th World Health Organization Executive Board

PATH comments on the Executive Board's agenda item on accelerating the elimination of cervical cancer as a global public health problem. PATH recommends that the strategy include HPV vaccines as a key WHO "best buy", and urges that efforts to prevent cervical cancer be accompanied by efforts to strengthen national health information systems. PATH also calls on WHO to endorse self-sampling for HPV testing, accelerated access to lower-cost point-of-care screening tests, treatment, and strategic procurement.
