Cervical cancer has been identified as one of the leading cancers in the South East Asian Region (SEAR). In the year 2018 in the SEAR alone in excess of 0.16 million new cases and 0.096 million deaths have been attributed to the disease. The target for the region is to eliminate cervical cancers by the year 2030 and for the accomplishment of the same, a lot needs to be done. Screening has been identified as one of the crucial strategies to prevent the cancer and there is a definite need to implement an organized screening program in the entire nation. It is vital to understand that mere capacity building won't affect the results, instead we surely require improvement in the quality of offered services. In conclusion, elimination of cervical cancer from the region will significantly improve the quality of life of women. However, to accomplish that the need of the hour is to strengthen the immunization, screening, treatment and rehabilitation services.
