This Plan envisions a future with the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem as a result of universal access to sexual health and STI prevention services, HPV vaccines, effective screening and precancer treatment services, treatment of invasive cervical cancer, and palliative care. It foresees that all women and girls, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, HIV status, or disability will have timely access to quality cervical cancer prevention, care, and treatment so that they can live in good health throughout the life course and enjoy the health-related human rights. The Plan is based on the recognition of Member States’ diverse contexts, priorities, and needs, while adapting the global mandates and initiatives relevant to cervical cancer to the regional context; and involves cooperating with Member States on the implementation of comprehensive strategies to strengthen cervical cancer programs in the Region. It calls for facilitating dialogue; implementing existing PAHO/WHO cervical cancer tools and resources (Annex B); and promoting synergies and coordinating efforts with existing partner initiatives, including the RINC Cervical Cancer Prevention and Control Plan for South America. The goal is to accelerate progress toward the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem in the Americas by reducing incidence and mortality rates by one-third by 2030. This goal is aligned with Target 3.4 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
