Saving women's lives from cervical cancer in sub-Saharan Africa

The global health community has made significant progress in reducing the number of deaths from diseases like HIV/AIDS. But the work is not complete.

Go Further is an innovative partnership that leverages public and private investments with the goal of significantly reducing cervical cancer deaths among HIV-positive women in Sub-Saharan Africa within a generation.

The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has saved millions of lives from HIV/AIDS. But women living HIV are five times more likely to develop cervical cancer — and are dying from a preventable and treatable disease.

Led by the Bush Institute, PEPFAR, UNAIDS, and Merck, Go Further increases access to the HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, expands the availability of vital cervical cancer screening, and provides treatment for those most vulnerable to developing cervical cancer.
