This Special Presentation Screening for International Women’s Day will include a Q&A with guest speakers Sue Collins, Professor Karen Canfell, Professor Marion Saville and Professor Yin Ling Woo.
Can you imagine a world without cancer? For the first time in human history, the elimination of a cancer – cervical cancer – is possible. Eliminating this preventable disease is already a remarkable Australian success story. Now we must make it a global reality.
An action of this scale has the power to shape history, a movement so forceful it is referred to as a ‘moonshot’. When NASA sent man to the moon we were presented with a literal moonshot, but Conquering Cancer is not a journey to the moon, it is a journey to the future.
Travelling from Australia to Malaysia; Zambia to the USA; Colombia to Switzerland, you’ll meet the inspiring women who have faced cervical cancer head on. Their stories are full of wisdom, determination and heart, and their triumph will give you hope for a cervical cancer free world.
Conquering Cancer is definitive film with a soaring ambition: to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer for every woman and girl. It will show you what needs to be done to achieve this incredible feat and save the lives of an estimated 62 million women.
