Cervical cancer remains the second most common cancer for women worldwide and is the cancer priority in most low- and middle income countries (LMIC). The development of vaccines against the human papilloma virus (HPV) and the impact of technology both for the detection of HPV and cervical cancer represent milestones and new opportunities in prevention. New internet-based technologies are generating mass access to training programmes.
