Description: As the world marks the fourth International Day of the Girl Child, Girl Effect and Gavi today announced a ground-breaking partnership to protect girls from contracting cervical cancer in developing countries. The number of deaths from cervical cancer is on the rise and, without intervention, it is set to overtake maternal mortality in developing countries. Girl Effect and Gavi’s partnership will help address the negative social norms that prevent girls from accessing the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, which provides protection against 70% of cervical cancer cases. The aim of the partnership is to ensure that more girls take up the vaccine in parts of the world where they are most at risk.
