Description This proposed Supporting Effective Coverage of Health Technology in the Pacific (the project) will form part of the regional response to reduce the number of cervical cancer cases and other infectious diseases in children and women. The project proposes to use the introduction of new vaccines and early detection through communicable disease platforms to drive necessary improvements in the public health system in selected Pacific DMCs in line with the Asia Pacific Strategy for Emerging Diseases and Public Health Emergency.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes almost all cervical cancers through communicable disease transmission. Cervical cancer is a major cause of premature death in the Pacific causing nearly 500 deaths in 2010 and is therefore a leading cause of death among women in 2010 across the Pacific region. It is largely preventable through cost effective interventions of early detection and HPV vaccination. Immunization is pro-poor, providing relatively larger benefits to low-income households.
