Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers in women worldwide, despite being identified as one of the most preventable and successfully treatable forms of cancers. The majority of deaths could be avoided if women had regular cervical screening along with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. Poor education, lack of resources, fear and embarrassment, along with cultural traditions, have been identified as challenges that prevent women from having the HPV vaccination and cervical screening. This report will provide an overview of cervical cancer, whilst acknowledging health disparities and the innovations used to tackle these health inequalities in the struggle to eradicate cervical cancer.
