WHO’s Consultation on Women’s Cancer Across the Life-Course

INCTR participated in the recent WHO consultation, “Women’s Cancer Across the Life-Course”, that was held on October 29th at WHO headquarters in Geneva. Because it is projected that the ratio between maternal mortality and breast and cervical cancer mortality will be one to one by 2025, WHO is commencing a program of work to respond to women’s health needs beyond reproductive health issues, and more specifically to strengthen its approach to women’s cancers across the life-span. The purpose of this consultative meeting with partners of WHO was to define priority actions for WHO in the next two years with respect to women’s cancers, particularly focusing on breast cancer. Another aim of the meeting was to define the most appropriate role for WHO and partner organizations, as well as joint work, and the most effective division of work with the organization.
