Every 2 minutes, a woman dies of cervical cancer somewhere in the world. Of the total number of women who die from cervical cancer, 85% live in developing countries. They are often young mothers who are central to the household and indispensable to the family income and the local economy. When they are gone, it has a huge impact on their families and the village they live in.

The Female Cancer Foundation aims for a world without cervical cancer through screening, research and education.
