Title of Collaborative Activity:

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cervical Cancer Initiative

Description of Collaborative Activity:

NCI/CGH and HHS/OS/OGA have been supporting a collaborative effort to strengthen cervical cancer control through the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum (APEC). Effective cervical cancer control strategies exist all along the cervical cancer control continuum, including primary prevention, screening, treatment, and palliative care. Recent research has demonstrated the effectiveness of lower cost screening techniques, and ongoing research is exploring additional reduced-cost cervical cancer control options. The large number of interventions currently available and on the horizon means that the integration of these approaches into health systems is possible for economies of many different resource levels and can have substantial impact on public health, the workforce, and the broader economy.
