England has set an ambitious goal of eliminating cervical cancer by 2040, says NHS England, led by Amanda Pritchard.

The HPV vaccine is highly effective at preventing cervical cancer, with studies showing an 87% reduction in cases among vaccinated women.
Self-testing screening kits are being trialled to make it easier for women to get screened.
