Launched in May 2018, Go Further is an innovative public-private partnership between the U.S. President Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the George W. Bush Institute, UNAIDS, Merck, and Roche.

Go Further is committed to creating a healthier future for women by integrating and scaling-up cervical cancer screening and treatment services within existing platforms for HIV prevention and treatment and women’s health.

The partners of Go Further are delighted to be participating in the 24th International AIDS Conference. Here’s how you can learn more about our partnership, the contributions of the partners, and the work being done in 12 African countries to reduce incidence and deaths from cervical cancer, especially among women living with HIV.

Meet with Go Further Partners

Join us on July 29 between 12:00-2:00 pm at the PEPFAR Booth for a special “Ask the Expert” session on women's health featuring Go Further partner representatives. Stop by to chat with Go Further partners and experts from the PEPFAR field teams who will share about the partnership and its ongoing efforts to increase access to screening and treatment for cervical cancer among women living with HIV.
