Join W2W in Ending Cervical Cancer

34269634_1541481891422942_r.jpegImagine if you had the power to prevent cervical cancer.  What would you do?

Cervical cancer is nearly 100% preventable, yet each year there are over 311,000 deaths from cervical cancer worldwide and over 528,000 new cases each year.  87% of cervical cancer deaths occur in low resource settings. Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in most Sub-Saharan African countries with more than 61,000 dying in 2015. More women die globally of cervical cancer than die as result of childbirth.

Women living with HIV are at least five times more likely to develop cervical cancer than their HIV-negative peers, and they have twice the risk for death from invasive cervical cancer within three years than women who do not have HIV. These deaths from cervical cancer are 100% preventable. 

 In most countries, there is little prevention, screening and treatment available. Yet we have effective, low-cost tools to prevent and treat the disease.

 Catalytic change is needed to prevent women dying from cervical cancer. The Women to Watch Foundation is partnering with TogetHER for Health to end cervical cancer. 

The Women to Watch Ambassadors are bringing both awareness and since 100% preventable, increase our fundraising efforts to vaccinate girls and screen and treat women early and at a low cost.

 We are asking for your help.  You have the power to join us in preventing cervical cancer now.

•             $25 can provide a woman with screening and treatment of cervical pre-cancer.

•             $100 can vaccinate 11 girls against HPV.

•             $500 can provide transportation for 10 women to and from treatment centers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

•             $1,000 can train community health workers to do outreach work.

•             $5,000 covers a site’s “screen-and-treat” supplies for a year
