Global Health

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

The Bush Institute’s global health initiative is built on the belief that every life is precious and focuses on saving lives in the developing world.

The Institute’s flagship global health program is the Partnership to End AIDS and Cervical Cancer, which leads coordinated action to save women from cervical cancer in Sub–Saharan Africa.

The Partnership to End AIDS and Cervical Cancer is an effort between the Bush Institute, the U.S. Presidents' Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and the joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), designed to effectively eliminate cervical cancer deaths among HIV-positive women in sub-Saharan Africa within a generation.

Building on Progress

"It’s time to take the next step in building on the progress that has been made over the past decade in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Many women who seek AIDS services also face the challenge of cancer. It’s not enough to save a woman from AIDS, if she is then left to die of another very preventable disease." - President George W. Bush
