Cervical cancer, caused by sexually-acquired infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), continues to be a public health problem worldwide as it claims the lives of more than 270,000 women every year. In high-income countries early diagnosis and treatment of precancerous lesions has led to a significant reduction in the burden of disease. Because of poor access to high quality screening and treatment services the majority of cervical cancer deaths (85%) occur in women living in low- and middle-income countries.
