Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) 2013
9 - 15 June 2013
Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) is a UK wide initiative lead by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. The week aims to highlight the importance of cervical screening (smear) and how attending a screening invitation can help to prevent cervical cancer.
In the UK, 20% of women still do not attend their cervical screening and so raising public awareness of cervical cancer prevention is still a priority. Public knowledge and understanding of issues such as cervical screening, the causes of cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer and treatment is generally low.
We need to ask your help to promote the week as widely as possible. Could you help? See our get involved page for more details.
Also during the week we will be holding our annual 5k sponsored walk Walk for Fun.
