SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA PROJECT

One of our current objectives is to support the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer, both in Canada and in low and middle-income countries (LMIC). We have  working agreements with health ministries, as well as key leaders in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Guinea, and Mali to implement a course of action to support the WHO’s global strategy to be on the path toward these goals:

  1. 90% of girls fully vaccinated with the HPV vaccine by age 15 years
  2. 70% of women screened with a high-performance test by 35 and 45 years of age
  3. 90% of women identified with cervical disease receive treatment
  4. 90% of women with pre-cancer treated
  5. 90% of women with invasive cancer managed
