Intergenerational Approaches to Prevent and Treat Cervical Cancer in the Caribbean

This project seeks to prevent unnecessary deaths and illness resulting from cervical cancer by taking a life cycle approach: offering preventative care through the vaccine before instances of cancer become likely, while bolstering the capacity and quality of screening and treatment options for mature women. Working closely with Trinidad & Tobago’s Ministry of Health, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and key partner institutions, the project works to re-position the HPV vaccine to generate demand, educate women and girls to drive uptake of screening, support health facilities to screen and treat women in need, and coordinate the public and private sectors to develop a road map for implementation at scale.
