Women Matter. We Love our Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, and Grandmothers. That is why CCFC is fundraising to promote worldwide access to safe, effective cervical cancer screening and treatment to prevent unnecessary suffering and death from cervical cancer.Through screening and HPV vaccination, we now have the tools necessary to prevent cervical cancer. CCFC works to give women worldwide access to safe, effective cervical cancer screening and treatment to prevent unnecessary suffering and death from cervical cancer. We work to promote widespread vaccination of adolescents against HPV to prevent HPV-associated cancers in the future. Love is protecting the health of the world’s women and girls, giving them the best the opportunity to live long, healthy lives.
The Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition (CCFC) is a global initiative to dramatically reduce cervical cancer rates by increasing access to human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, cervical cancer screening, and ensure continuity of treatment among women for cervical cancer prevention worldwide.
The Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition (CCFC) works to increase global cervical cancer prevention activities. CCFC shares resources, tools, and lessons-learned to translate research into evidence-based practice through local collaboration. CCFC’s global goals are:
- To increase HPV vaccination among girls and adolescents
- To increase cervical cancer screening among women who have not been screened or are overdue for screening.
- To ensure continuity to treatment for women with cervical abnormalities.
The CCFC website serves as an online forum for sharing updates, survivors’ personal stories, news and activities, and information on organizations working on cervical cancer prevention. Country-level activities are locally owned and developed according to evidence-based guidelines and local policy, in collaboration with public health practitioners, policy makers, NGOs, and other stakeholders. In the US, CCFC’s eleven member-state coalitions leverage strong connections to local stakeholders, including health directors, vaccination and cancer control agencies, practitioners, and community advocates. New collaborators are always welcome!
