United to End Cervical Cancer in Egypt

The Rotary Foundation recently announced the award of the most recent Program of Scale Grant, $2 million to prevent cervical cancer in Egypt.

United to End Cervical Cancer in Egypt is a Rotary member-led program that aims to ultimately reduce the number of cervical cancer cases in the greater Cairo region by implementing a four-year campaign to increase awareness about cervical cancer and how to prevent it. The implementation experience and data collected through this program will inform an evidence-based national strategy by the Egyptian government toward eliminating cervical cancer, considered one of the most preventable cancers.
