Abt Associates was a proud sponsor of Women Deliver 2019, the world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.

Abt hosted a side event on June 2, along with the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists and other partners. The workshop brought together experts who are focused on eliminating cervical cancer. Participants’ input informed the development of recommendations to support implementation of local solutions to strengthen the continuum of care – from prevention to treatment – in low-resource settings.
