Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2019

Do you know how cervical cancer can be prevented? During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (CCPW) we’ll be talking about how you can reduce your risk of the disease and help to educate others.

When? Monday 21 – Sunday 27 January 2019

What? Cervical cancer can be prevented. Join us to raise awareness to help women make informed decisions about their health.

Where? You can raise awareness, fundraise and campaign in your local community, at home, school, university, your GP surgery or hospital. Read on to find out how you can get involved.

How can you reduce your risk of cervical cancer?

We want to ensure all women and people with a cervix know how cervical cancer can be prevented. This means:

2
Women lose their lives to the disease every day
9
women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day
75%
of cervical cancers can be prevented by cervical screening (smear tests)

How can you get involved?

There are lots of different ways to get involved during Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.
