Advocacy for cervical cancer elimination

Welcome to the advocacy for cervical cancer elimination self-guided course
This course and the cervical cancer handbook, were developed by UICC as part of the Unitaid-funded "Scale-Up Cervical Cancer Elimination with Secondary prevention Strategy" (SUCCESS) project.

Course overview
The aim of the self-guided course is to provide in-country civil society organisations or coalitions with technical knowledge and skills to develop and implement successful national advocacy campaigns on cervical cancer, and covers the following areas:

  • Coalition building
  • Advocacy
  • Health financing and budget advocacy
  • Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (MEL)
This self-guided course builds upon the tools, resources and information provided through UICC’s  Advocacy for improved cancer control Master course, bringing a specific focus to advocacy for cervical cancer elimination. The next Master Course will run from January – May 2023. To keep up to date on the launch of the Master course, subscribe to the UICC newsletter.

We hope that this course provides useful insights to stimulate discussions, and helps to progress your national advocacy efforts.

The SUCCESS project aims to accelerate progress on cervical cancer elimination by strengthening screening services and treatment of precancerous lesions, through the use and scale-up of innovative technologies. The SUCCESS project is funded by Unitaid, led by Expertise France, and is delivered through a consortium model, with Jhpiego as a key implementing partner.

As part of UICC’s role in the consortium, UICC seeks to provide support to its member organisations to advance national advocacy efforts for cervical cancer elimination, including, for example, advocating for a supportive policy environment for the rapid uptake of new technologies and approaches for screening and treatment.
