Building Partnerships to Strengthen Cervical Cancer Prevention in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Cervical Cancer - the Global Situation

Each year, more than 570,000 new cases of cervical cancer and 311,000 deaths from the disease occur globally; these numbers are predicted to increase to more than 700,000 new cases and 400,000 deaths per year by 2030. The vast majority of these new cases and deaths occur among disadvantaged women living in low-, lower-middle- and upper-middle-income countries, which lack the effective cervical cancer prevention programmes that are common in high-income countries.
