In a recent study, the World Health Organization (WHO) describes a study which aims to eliminate cervical cancer “as a public health problem.”

This goal is planned to be achieved through the WHO’s Cervical Cancer Elimination Modelling Consortium (CCEMC), which involves “three independent, dynamic models of HPV infection, cervical carcinogenesis, screening, and precancer and invasive cancer treatment,” which has been examined in several research studies, including the most recent aforementioned.

The findings from CCEMC reveal that in the next 10 years, there could be a reduction of 1/3 of  “premature mortality” of cervical cancer
