Situation

Gynaecological cancers are the world's fourth largest cancer killer of women. Every year, 1 million women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer worldwide (compared to 1.2 million who are diagnosed with breast cancer) and, ever year, over 850,000 women die from these diseases. In the UK, 17,500 women are diagnosed and over 7,000 women die every year. Despite this, gynaecological cancers remain an underprofiled and underfunded cause.

Solution

The Eve Appeal funds groundbreaking research into gynaecological cancers in order to drive early diagnosis of the disease and to lead the way in prevention. The research that we fund is part of a programme at the Gynaecology Cancer Research Centre at UCL, which leads research in gynaecological cancers in the UK and is one of the leading research centres in the world.
