UNITAID is calling for proposals to help eliminate cervical cancer and is seeking to fund innovative projects that would improve and expand screening and treatment for cervical cancer, with special attention given to women living with HIV. They are particularly vulnerable given that HIV/HPV co-infection progresses more quickly to cervical cancer.
This HPV call seeks projects that would:
• Create a market for the best available tools to screen and treat women at risk of developing cervical cancer in low- and middle-income countries, including point of care molecular tests and treatment devices.
• Remove market barriers that stand in the way of these emerging tools being put to use.
• Help to efficiently and economically integrate these tools into countries, setting them up for large-scale expansion in the future.
The deadline to send the intention to submit form is set to 20th June 2018.
The deadline to submit full proposals is set to 27th August 2018.
