Cervical Cancer Day of Action​

On 17 November 2022, members and partners of the MENA Coalition for HPV Elimination celebrated the second anniversary of the Day of Action for Cervical Cancer Elimination. By engaging key health officials and decision-makers from more than 10 countries across the region, the coalition hosted an expert roundtable where challenges and successes around the implementation of HPV vaccination at national levels were shared.

The roundtable was also an opportunity for WHO EMRO to offer support to countries facing introduction challenges and commemorate the launch of WHO’s global strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer adopted by 194 countries in 2020. The roundtable was marked by key countries in the region presenting the cervical cancer burden and HPV vaccination situation in their respective countries.
