The facts

  • Every day in the UK 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer
  • 3 women lose their lives from the disease every day
  • Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged 35
  • 75% of cervical cancers are prevented by cervical screening (smear tests) 
  • However 1 in 4 women do not attend this potentially life-saving test 


Our research 

Almost half a million young women aged 25-29 did not attend cervical screening last year, this Cervical Cancer Prevention Week aims to change this.
