[About the manual]. Unlike most other cancers, cervical cancer can be prevented through screening programs designed to identify and treat precancerous lesions. Still, more than 490,000 new cases of cervical cancer occur among women worldwide each year (Ferlay et al. 2004).

This manual aims to help management teams in planning, implementing, and monitoring cervical cancer prevention and control services. The manual focuses on the generic programme elements crucial to the success of cervical cancer prevention and control programmes and deals with the full continuum from prevention via screening and treatment to palliative care. It presents various service delivery options applicable to different geographical and cultural settings, and to a range of resource levels.Support for the development of this publication was provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through the Alliance for Cervical Cancer Prevention.
