The Global Fund uses efficiency savings from investments in HIV to expand efforts to integrate HPV screening and early treatment in countries where it already supports HIV programmes. All of this is done through the Global Fund’s broader policy on co-infections and co-morbidities of HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Cervical cancer incidence overlaps with HIV: women living with HIV are five times more likely to develop cervical cancer, and more likely to develop it at a younger age. Please review the W4GF Action Alert on Cervical Cancer and HIV in English, French and Russian.
