About Us

The Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer was launched by the European Cervical Cancer Association (ECCA), together with its members across Europe and its partners in the United States. It is a coordinated international effort to raise awareness of cervical cancer and how it can be prevented. Although each organisation has its own priority areas, we have come together under the banner of the Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to present a united front in the battle against cervical cancer so we can maximise our ability to reach our target audiences.
