VCS Foundation is proud to support the SUCCESS
(Scale Up for Cervical Cancer Elimination Strategy Success)
in the Indo-Pacific ECHO
Through the use of the ECHO™ model and web based video conferencing, SUCCESS ECHO provides peer-to-peer and expert support to multi-sectorial country teams answering the World Health Organization call to scale up cervical cancer prevention to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem by the end of the century (<4 per 100,000 per year).
Covering topics related to screening, vaccination, and treatment, SUCCESS ECHO monthly sessions bring together practitioners seeking and contributing peer and expert advice regarding the challenges faced when scaling up to reach the 2030 goals for all countries to:
- Achieve 90% HPV vaccination coverage by age 15 years
- Achieve 70% participation in twice lifetime high precision screening of mid adult women
- Achieve 90% treatment of screen detected cervical lesions and cancers
Indo-Pacific Countries who have participated so far:
Australia Mongolia Singapore Brunei Myanmar Sri Lanka China Nepal Taipei India New Zealand Taiwan Indonesia Papua New Guinea USA Malaysia Philippines Viet Nam Maldives Samoa
“We will need to work together to share knowledge and emerging solutions to meet these targets for all women in our region”
