India: Cervical Cancer Elimination - Country Review & Roadmap for Action

Publication

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. However, in 2020, an estimated 341,800 women died from cervical cancer globally. The annual number of new cases of cervical cancer has been projected to increase from 570,000 to 700,000 between 2018 and 2030, with the annual number of deaths projected to increase from 311,000 to 400,0002. Most of these deaths occurred in low- and lower-middle income countries (LMICs) due to inadequate access to cervical cancer prevention, screening and treatment.

In November 2020, the World Health Organization launched a Global Strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem. If this Strategy is implemented globally, a total of 74 million cervical cancer cases could be prevented and 62 million women’s lives could be saved over the next century. 

The UNFPA Asia-Pacific Regional Office together with the Cancer Counsil NSW developed a series of briefs on Cervical Cancer Elimination to guide countries within the region. This is the country review and roadmap for action for India.

Guidelines for Establishing Hotlines to Support Survivors of Gender-based Violence

Publication

The purpose of this guide developed by the UNFPA Asia-Pacific Regional Office is to bring together relevant standards, information, and regional experiences to support the planning and operation of GBV Hotlines in the region. It is not intended to be a comprehensive reference for GBV case management, but rather to highlight how the process of implementing GBV response services through a hotline differs from onsite GBV response.

Hotline planning requires thinking through a number of elements from a new perspective, including use of technology, documentation and data protection, and staff training and support. This guide therefore aims to raise issues and questions to be considered by those planning and implementing GBV hotlines.

Technology-facilitated Gender-based Violence: Making All Spaces Safe

Publication

As the world continues to evolve and expand in the use of technology and platforms, so too does the expansion of spaces through which violence can be perpetrated. This was evidenced no more so than during the COVID-19 pandemic where containment efforts reduced access to information and services driving increased use of technology and online spaces. This paper serves as an alarm bell for the international community, digital and feminist movements, private technology companies and national Governments to act in unison to end the rising scourge of technology-facilitated gender-based violence.
