Our strategy

A scientist

For the past 120 years, we’ve been making discoveries that have saved countless lives. But we have so much more to do. Our strategy sets out how we'll accelerate progress towards a better future.

Our research is saving lives

Research into cervical cancer has saved many thousands of lives through discovering new ways to prevent and diagnose the disease and developing better treatments.  

We have a proven track record of propelling discoveries forwards. The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and screening methods we helped develop are preventing thousands of deaths every year. Thanks to these advances, the World Health Organization has set an ambitious target to eliminate the disease globally as a public health problem. This is the first time the world has committed to a target like this. 

We want to bring about a future where almost no-one develops cervical cancer. Where people in the UK and across the world can share in this progress equally regardless of who they are or where they’re from.
