A Call For Video

AHETI will host the “Uniting Faith and Science to Eliminate Cervical Cancer in Africa” event, bringing together policymakers, representatives of relevant intergovernmental organizations, the international community of educators, private sector representatives, non-profit and government organizations, leading health companies, researchers, practitioners, and doctors. The event will facilitate a comprehensive discussion on the current state of cervical cancer and HPV vaccination in Africa, addressing the unprecedented rise in cervical cancer cases across the continent.

Participants will explore strategies to promote the development of vaccines and implement targeted actions to combat cervical cancer. This collaborative effort aims to put Africa on track for significant advancements in public health.

We invite the international community to take an active role in shaping the future of women’s health in Africa. Share your research findings, exchange ideas with policymakers and partners, engage with health practitioners, expand your professional network, and find inspiration to drive change.
