Pe data de 17 noiembrie 2020, pentru prima data, lumea intreaga s-a angajat sa elimine un tip de cancer prin lansarea Strategiei pentru eliminarea cancerului cervical.
    In mai 2018 a fost lansat un apel la actiune de catre OMD si 194 tari si-au propus sa rezolve impreuna problema unui cancer ce poate fi atat prevenit, cat si tratat/vindecat.
    In august 2020 s-a adoptat strategia pentru a pune in practica acest deziderat, desi lumea trece printr-o perioada de pandemie cu COVID-19.

    "Daca nu facem nimic cu aceasta boala, numarul de cazuri va spori, iar numarul de decese va creste, de asemenea, cu 21% pana în 2030”, a precizat cu prilejul unei conferinţe de presa Princess Nothemba Simelela din Africa de Sud, director general adjunct in cadrul OMS.
    "Vrem ca statele sa tinteasca spre o vaccinare în proportie de 90% a fetelor cu varsta sub 15 ani, ca 70% dintre femeile eligibile sa fie identificate si tratate, iar 90% dintre cele cu forme invazive de cancer, tratate", a spus aceasta.

    The World Health Assembly has adopted the global strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem.

    Cervical cancer is a preventable and curable disease, as long as it is detected early and managed effectively. Yet it is the fourth most common form of cancer among women worldwide, and the most common cancer among women living with HIV, who are six times as likely to develop cervical cancer. In 2018, the disease claimed the lives of more than 300 000 women.

    Cancer of the cervix is also a disease that reflects global inequity. Its burden is greatest in low- and middle-income countries, where access to public health services is limited and screening and treatment for the disease have not been widely implemented. In 2018, nearly 90% of all deaths worldwide occurred in low- and middle-income countries.  Further, the proportion of women with cervical cancer who die from the disease is greater than 60% in these countries, which is more than twice the number in many high-income countries, where it is as low as 30%.
