Cervical cancer (CC) is the fourth most common cancer among women in the world. In the Russian Federation, the incidence of cervical cancer is in second position in the structure of genital cancers. The WHO Global Strategy to Accelerate the Elimination of CC as a Public Health Problem recommends an integrated approach to prevention and control of CC that combines vaccination, screening and treatment. A review and analysis of modern data on this problem over the past decade is presented. Scaling up HPV vaccination, increasing the level of cervical screening and coverage of the female population, developed post-screening management and timely treatment of precancer will reduce the incidence and mortality associated with cervical cancer.
