On January 20, Cervical Cancer Action will host its eleventh global webinar to support broad dissemination of the WHO's newly updated guidance document: Comprehensive cervical cancer control: A guide to essential practice. The document provides country-level decision makers and civil society stakeholders with the latest evidence, recommendations, and tools to support an effective, efficient, and far-reaching national response to cervical cancer prevention and control.


The webinar, organized in collaboration with WHO, will convene leading experts to discuss the evidence review process and will highlight new recommendations. Panelists will also speak on how the WHO recommendations can be adapted and scaled for effective national programs.


This webinar will be presented in English. French and Spanish language webinars will be offered once translations of the document become available later in the year.
