Every 2 minutes

One woman dies from cervical cancer every two minutes – or 266,000 a year – over 85% in the developing world. If current trends hold, and without changes in prevention and control, cervical cancer deaths could eventually outpace maternal deaths. HPV vaccines can prevent up to 90% of all cervical cancer cases.
