BMC Women's Health is calling for submissions to our Collection on Approaches to prevention of gynecological malignancies.
This Collection aims to consolidate current knowledge, share innovative strategies, and promote interdisciplinary research focused on preventing gynecological tumors. Gynecological malignancies pose a significant health challenge for women worldwide. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, prevention remains a crucial aspect of the fight against these cancers. The urgency surrounding the prevention of gynecological tumors stems from their high incidence and mortality rates, with these issues constituting a major global health challenge. Many gynecological malignancies are preventable through measures such as early screening and vaccination, making prevention a critical avenue for reducing the burden of these diseases. These tumors profoundly impact women's health, contribute to healthcare disparities, and carry substantial economic and societal costs.
This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being and, SDG 5: Gender Equality.
