About Us

Grandmother with her daughter

We can prevent cervical cancer with reliable cervical cancer screening methods, safe and effective vaccines, and efficacious treatment. Based on the Carolina Framework, we are launching a global effort to dramatically reduce cervical cancer by establishing and reinvigorating partnerships at the country-level that put current knowledge into action. We have the tools to prevent cervical cancer; now is the time to move to action.

Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition (CCFC) global goals:

  1. To increase HPV vaccination among young female adolescents
  2. To increase cervical cancer screening among women who have not been screened or are overdue for screening
  3. To ensure continuity to treatment for women with cervical abnormalities

All activities are conducted in accordance with national guideline recommendations in each partner country.

Cervical Cancer-Free America (CCFA) goals:

  1. To increase HPV vaccination among young adolescents ages 11-18
  2. To increase cervical cancer screening among women ages 25-65 who are overdue for screening

In the U.S., state partners in AlabamaCaliforniaIndiana, KentuckyNorth Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas implement state-level programs, research and policy activities. Lessons learned can be scaled up in other CCFA states and ultimately across the nation.

CCFC is building country-level partnerships across Africa, Asia and Latin America using the CCFA state partner model. Country partners create national policy coalitions, and develop country-specific projects focused on vaccination, screening and continuity to treatment. Implementation projects will allow countries to address local challenges and opportunities, while still working on developing sustainable national programs to prevent cervical cancer.
