1 Sample & Assay Technologies For Internal Use Only QIAGEN: Making Improvements in Life Possible Improving the lives of women around the world by expanding access to screening technologies and working to eliminate cervical cancer

2 Sample & Assay Technologies The Challenge The Paradox The Cause Cervical Cancer: A known cause, yet prevention restrained by access Improve access. Increase political will. Engage with partners.

The prevention tools are available. The challenge is access.. For the sake of women everywhere, access needs to be improved.. QIAGEN is taking the lead. HPV vaccination of young girls Screening and treatment
