A perspective of Healthcare Interdependence and Cervical Carcinoma

Locandina FirenzeIn a world where interdependence seems to be ever more necessary, health care needs to discover ways to develop new frontiers and skills using direct forms of collaboration which can overcome situations of inequality. This way, good healthcare outcomes can be possible and attainable not only in countries with higher healthcare standards.

By means of conventions and the spreading of information about the results of this endeavour, we would like to promote a type of health care based on a new medical etiquette.

It is in this particular framework that the present scientific meeting is being held.

Our objective is to create an opportunity for exchange and dialogue among experts in science, culture and the social sciences regarding the possibility of interdependence and how to promote it.

In this perspective the subject of cervical cancer (considered as the ‘big killer’ in developing countries due to the lack of prevention programs, scarce diagnostic care and inadequate treatment facilities) has been dealt with. Dialogue, active interchange of ideas and proposals present themselves as elements for “new pathways” to know more and better about an existing situation.
