Conquering Cervical Cancer

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. Travelling from Australia to Malaysia; Zambia to the USA; Colombia to Switzerland, Conquering Cancer declares a deep divide.

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.
