Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although cervical cancer is one of the most preventable and curable gynaecological tumours, it is the malignancy with the largest inter-country variation in incidence and mortality among all cancers. This applies to Europe and at a larger scale world-wide. Low-income countries in Sub Saharan Africa Latin America and East Asia are the most affected. This is largely due to inequalities in access for women to quality cervical cancer prevention screening and management services. The WHO has set the global health agenda and the tools to eliminate cervical cancer. Within comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach, the gynae oncology (GO) discipline plays a leading role in knowledge translation and North South knowledge transfer.  

In this special issue, the authors will present their studies about burden and trends in cervical cancer incidence and mortality and how the WHO blueprint of national comprehensive cervical cancer plans is in process to be adopted at national and international level. This special issue will include assessments about progress made in national planning and the impact of the increasing investment in health system strengthening on the cervical cancer burden. The global regional and national role of GO to lead the translation of the WHO strategy into action will be highlighted. Reference will be made to best ways of adapting generic guidelines about early detection management and palliative care into various resource settings. Strategies for knowledge transfer are reviewed about their effectiveness to support low- and middle-income countries to increase their capacity to perform quality interventions for women with pre-invasive and invasive cervical cancer.  

In addition, this special issue will accept contributions which bring cervical cancer management into the context of the broader framework of women health.
