The fight against cervical cancer and HPV in the pandemic
Professor Albert Singer, co-founder and trustee of the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology and a founding member of the British Gynaecological Cancer Society, discusses in depth the fight against cervical cancer and HPV in the current coronavirus pandemic.
Professor Albert Singer says, “With the present pandemic it is said that life will never be the same again, and this will apply to many things in our present life. For those concerned with eliminating cervical cancer, the effect of the Pandemic are extremely worrying. With resources being diverted to the COVID-19 response and social distancing, we face scarce supplies of the HPV vaccine; challenges of reduced or delayed screening for women; and the issue of cervical cancer plummeting down governments’ agenda. We must act now to mitigate the impact this pandemic could have on our fight against cervical cancer.”
