This article summarizes great efforts that Chinese scholars had made in fighting against cervical cancer from aspects of the epidemiology, etiology, population-based screening studies, novel screening technology development, guideline, strategy and policy making and population delivery. After decades of continuous efforts, Chinese scientists successfully translated their scientific discovery to appropriate screening product development and eventually, delivered it to the whole population. We hope our experience could serve as a ‘case-story’ for cancer prevention in other low- and middle-income countries. Moreover, challenges confronted in the prevention and control of cervical cancer in China are reviewed as well to appeal for future multi-collaborations and potential solutions to acquire the final success of the campaign.
