CARMEN: A Network for Integrated Prevention and Control of Chronic Noncommunicable Disease in the Americas
The CARMEN Pan American Network was developed because there was an increasing awareness among PAHO member countries that chronic noncommunicable diseases (CNCDs) account for nearly two-thirds of the total number of deaths in the Americas, and that, to a large extent, these diseases are dependent on risk factors and lifestyles that are amenable to modification. This page tells about the CARMEN network and how it contributes to NCD prevention and control throughout the Americas, with a multitude of links to its products, partners, and various activities (CARMEN Policy Observatory, CARMEN School, Pan American Cardiovascular Initiative, Central American Diabetes Initiative, etc.).(9/Jun/2009)

Cervical cancer kills more than 230,000 women each year worldwide and disproportionately affects the poorest, most vulnerable women. In 1999, with generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PAHO--along with four other international agencies--launched a major new effort to prevent cervical cancer worldwide. This group of organizations, the Alliance for Cervical Cancer Prevention, is working to clarify, promote, and implement strategies for preventing cervical cancer in developing countries.(29/Aug/2007)
