During this year’s conference, ACS will host sessions addressing harmonised cancer treatment guidelines for Sub-Saharan Africa, safely handling and administering of chemotherapy, building capacity of civil society organisations and their role in addressing the growing cancer burden in Africa, and how patient navigation can improve patient’s access to care and cancer experience and ACS’s plans to expand patient navigation to lower-resourced settings globally.

ACS will also be hosting a special workshop on “HPV vaccination for cervical cancer prevention”. The workshop will provide a quick overview of cervical cancer and its prevention with a special focus on HPV vaccination. Participants will learn simple key messages about HPV vaccination, discuss common myths and misconceptions, and will then engage in a communication role play activity to put this learning into practice. Participants will walk away confident in their ability to communicate the basics about HPV vaccination.
