Strategic Planning and Situation Assessment for Cervical Cancer Prevention:
Practical Experience from PATH

Strategic planning and Situation AssessmentFrom 2006 to 2011, PATH conducted demonstration projects in four low- and middle-income countries—India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam—to provide evidence for decision-making about public-sector introduction of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. The Cervical Cancer Prevention: Practical Experience Series summarizes lessons learned from these projects that can help guide future HPV vaccination program planning, especially in low-resource settings around the globe. Additional units in this series will be available soon.

This unit, Strategic Planning and Situation Assessment for Cervical Cancer Prevention helps decision-makers and program planners focus on key “big picture” questions about cervical cancer prioritization and on opportunities and challenges for improved cancer prevention, including vaccination of girls and precancer screening and treatment of adult women.
