Cervical Cancer-Free Coalition (CCFC) global goals:
All activities are conducted in accordance with national guideline recommendations in each partner country.
Cervical Cancer-Free America (CCFA) goals:
CCFA’s goals are in line with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP), and the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) screening guidelines for the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer:
· For women 21 to 29 years of age, screening with cytology alone every 3 years is recommended. HPV testing should not be used to screen women in this age group.
· Women ages 30 to 65 years should be screened with cytology and HPV testing (“cotesting”) every five years (preferred) or cytology alone every three years (acceptable).
