Conquering Cervical Cancer (USA)

For the first time in human history, the elimination of cervical cancer is possible

About the Film

Can you imagine a world without cancer?

Conquering Cervical Cancer dares you to imagine the seemingly unthinkable- what if we could conquer cancer? Featuring stories from accoladed field experts, stirring tales from survivors, and a rousing call to action from activists worldwide, Conquering Cervical Cancer is a groundbreaking documentary with a soaring ambition: to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer worldwide.

At a time when cervical cancer is on the brink of elimination but more than 300,000 women are still lost to the preventable disease each year, governments across the world must prioritise cervical cancer control. In 2018, the World Health Organization called for global action to end cervical cancer this century. By doing so, it is estimated that, 62 million lives could be saved.

Conquering Cancer introduces us to the inspiring medical professionals championing the global push to eliminate cervical cancer; the policymakers who are bringing prevention programs to their regions; and the women who have faced cervical cancer head-on and have emerged furiously, ready to take action against this needless disease. We are moved by their emotional narratives, as they speak candidly about treatment and recovery; tragedy and hope. Theirs is a story of extraordinary determination and heart.

Fostering Hope For Cervical Cancer USA

The USA is currently on track to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem within the next two to three decades. However, this could be expedited by 10-13 years by achieving higher screening coverage across the country.

Renowned documentary filmmaker Sue Collins takes us on a journey through the United States to discover if cervical cancer elimination is within reach. Comparing stories in the US to Australia’s successful cervical cancer prevention programs, as well as those in lower-resourced countries, we learn how this incredible feat can be achieved to save the lives of 62 million women worldwide.

Why It Matters

An estimated 62 million women can be saved through the elimination of cervical cancer globally. Eliminating  this disease will be one of the greatest public health achievements of our time. In a manner reminiscent of the successful eradication of palla, this milestone carries for reaching implications for global health.
