Change in lifetime risk of death from cervical cancer (Global), 1980-2010
IHME’s policy report The Challenge Ahead: Progress and Setbacks in Breast and Cervical Cancer shows that the risk of dying from cervical cancer fell in nearly every country from 1980 to 2010, because deaths from cervical cancer are not increasing as quickly as population growth. The exceptions are Sri Lanka, Iraq, Thailand, and Zambia, where the risk either stayed the same or increased slightly.
