Dr Béatrice Lauby-Secretan, Deputy Branch Head of the Evidence Synthesis and Classification Branch of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), will give a presentation on 6 July 2021 during a webinar organized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The webinar, titled “Reaching the 2030 targets for cervical cancer elimination: new WHO recommendations for screening and treatment”, is being held to launch the updated WHO guidance for screening and treatment of cervical pre-cancer lesions, best practices, and implications for national programmes. The guidelines include recommendations for the general population as well as for women living with HIV/AIDS.
These new guidelines from WHO are based in part on evaluations of the effectiveness of various methods for cervical cancer screening, performed by a Working Group of international experts convened by IARC to prepare IARC Handbooks of Cancer Prevention Volume 18 on Cervical Cancer Screening.
