Cervical cancer elimination in Africa: where are we now and where do we need to be?

Every two minutes a life is lost to cervical cancer. In 2020, 342 000 women died from the disease and almost a quarter of these deaths (22.5%) occurred in Africa. It does not have to be this way.

We have a real opportunity to save millions of lives as we have the tools, the know-how and a path to follow to eliminate cervical cancer on the African continent and globally.
On November 17th 2020, the Director General of WHO, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, launched the WHO Global Strategy to Accelerate the Elimination of Cervical Cancer. Elimination means that the cervical cancer incidence is reduced to four cases or less per 100,000 women per year. read more
