Imagine a world where women are free of Cervical Cancer!
According to the World Health Organization, Cervical Cancer is the ONLY CANCER that can be ELIMINATED through vaccination and screening. We are inviting leaders to attend the seminar and witness the first cervical cancer screening using a colposcope with artificial intelligence that can detect cervical pre-cancer in 93% sensitivity and 89% specificity with results out in 5 minutes.
BUT WHY CERVICAL CANCER?
Cervical Cancer ranks the second most common in women in the Philippines. About 4088 Filipino women die from this disease annually, or roughly 11 women per day. According to the World Health Organization, Cervical Cancer is the ONLY CANCER that can be entirely preventable through vaccination and screening.
Australia will be the first country set to eliminate this disease by 2035. This declining number of cases is primarily due to its active National Cervical Screening and HPV Vaccination Program.
In one report released by the World Health Organization, only one (1%) percent of all Filipino women aged 30 to 50 years old underwent cervical screening in 2019. In contrast, only 5% of the young adult population received complete vaccination.
The World Health Organization recommends each country achieve: 90% of girls receive HPV vaccination by the age of 15 and 70% of women aged 30 to 50 receive screening.
In line with the need to drastically improve our screening rates and thereby save the lives of women, this END CERVICAL CANCER coalition shall be holding this activity to educate and save women.
