ASHA’s HPV Programs Merge with the National Cervical Cancer Coalition

on Oct 31, 2011 | Cervical cancer HPV Women's Health General | 1 comments

We’re very excited to let everyone know that the National Cervical Cancer Coalition(NCCC) is merging with ASHA’s HPV and Cervical Cancer Prevention Resource Center programs.

A little bit of backgroud: NCCC was founded in 1996 by Alan Kaye and his late wife Randi (who died from cancer in 2001). The organization is a grassroos nonprofit that serves women with (or at risk for) cervical cancer and other diseases linked with the human papillomavirus, or HPV. NCCC has 6,500 members around the world and, through chapters across the U.S., is especially active in working with cervical cancer survivors.

NCCC’s sister organization, the Global Initiative Against HPV and Cervical Cancer, works throughout the developing world as a platform to empower people, communities and societies to reduce the disease burden from HPV and cervical cancers. (Read more about GIAHC in our press release about the amazing Starry Ganga Expedition).

ASHA’s HPV Resource Center was launched in 2000 and has a wealth of information around HPV and cervical cancer. Merging NCCC and ASHA’s HPV programs makes sense and creates a slate of services surpassing what either organization could do on its own.

Let us know what you think!
