The Eradication Project

Sweden's regions have decided to work together to reduce the incidence of cervical cancer and with a long-term goal of eradicating the disease.

This happens partly through a well-functioning screening program through vaccination against HPV within both school health care and through a targeted effort in the form of a national research study where women born in 1994-99 are offered catch-up vaccination to increase the coverage rate within this group.

The common goal of the regions' collaboration is thus to eradicate cervical cancer in order to also achieve better health in this way. RCC participates in the work on the eradication project.
