The webinar aims to bring together cancer prevention enthusiasts and stakeholders to present the objectives, timeline, expected outcomes and results of CBIG-SCREEN - a 5-year collaborative research project which received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 964049.
The CBIG-SCREEN project aims to reduce inequality by improving the offer of cervical cancer screening to vulnerable and underserved groups. Though Cervical Cancer Screening (CCS) programmes drastically reduce cervical cancer mortality, they remain largely inaccessible and underused by subpopulations of vulnerable women, exacerbating inequality.
CBIG-SCREEN will develop sound evidence around barriers to cervical cancer screening and pilot interventions with strategic outcomes to inform policy making to be updated after the decision is made on the categorisation of vulnerable groups. Last but not the least, the consortium will generate policies, programmes, communications and other services to meet the needs, and advise policymakers to develop recommendations.
This webinar is organised by the European Institute of Women's Health (EIWH) and co-hosted by MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen.
