First European Women's Health Award

The first Women Against Cervical Cancer (WACC) Forum will convene together health care professionals at all levels, to forging a global network to provide health education to women, ensuring that relevant information reaches appropriate populations and cervical cancer prevention programs become operational where most needed.

Health professionals active in scientific societies, patient associations, governmental and non-governmental organizations, research institutions, health communication agencies, and media are cordially invited and most welcome.

I am delighted to announce that, on the occasion of this Conference, during the WACC Forum and in collaboration with the Club Europeen de la Santé, the first ever European Women's Health Award will honour women's groups for their efforts in order to increase women awarness of cervical cancer prevention.

Submissions for the award are to be projects for implementation in the European territory and - in this first year - will concern campaigns to improving cervical cancer prevention. These projects shall relate more particularly to educational work improving, directly or indirectly, women's level of cervical cancer awareness and knowledge. Particular attention will be given to associative projects which encourage the involvement of young women and / or their mothers, and which could easily be transferred to other countries.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the applications for this award are open. The submissions shall be addressed to: Mme Dominique Dupont, Club Européen de la Santé, 49, rue Galilée, 75 116 Paris, France, and / or sent by e-mail to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by midnight of 30 September. A group of independent top experts from European countries will select the winning project(s) by 15 October 2008.

I very much look forward to this unique award in the very near future.

Yours sincerely,

J. Monsonego
