Eliminate Cervical Cancer in Timor-Leste

Eliminate Cervical Cancer in Timor-Leste

Australia is on track to become the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer, and C4 is now working with countries in our region to do the same.

AIDN is partnering with the team at C4 to host a special event in Sydney on Thursday 12 October at 6pm. Join us to learn about how you can be a part of the elimination of cervical cancer.  Hear from the Minderoo Foundation, whose landmark impact investment in PNG and Vanuatu is well advanced towards their target to test 30,000 women – and treating those women who need it. Hear from the Australians who are doing this work in partnership with Pacific neighbours - the C4 consortium – and learn about the small investments that could save the lives of a large number of girls and women in Timor Leste. Our speakers include:
  • Dr. Merita Monteiro, President of the National Institute of Public Health of Timor-Leste
  • Claire Wakefield, Minderoo Cancer Impact Mission
  • Professor Deb Bateson, Daffodil Centre, Sydney
