The mission of the American Cancer Society (ACS) is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. With more than 100 years of experience and leadership, we are a global force, fighting all cancers on all fronts, across the US and around the globe.

With the help of millions of supporters, we launch breakthrough research, create empowering resources for people to outsmart cancer, enable communities to support those affected, and convene powerful activists to create awareness and impact.

ACS is proud to support the 12th International Conference on Cancer in Africa to be held in Maputo, Mozambique this November. 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.
