#SmearForSmear is our annual campaign that takes place during Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.

#SmearForSmear 2021 will take place from 18-24 January. Read about this year's campaign below.

#SmearForSmear 2020

This year's campaign (20-26 January) focused on getting the facts out about HPV and smear tests. 

Smear tests can prevent cervical cancer so we want everyone to understand what the test is for and feel comfortable when they get their results. That means knowing what HPV is. Find out why >

HPV is a really common virus, but there are lots of myths and stigma which can cause shame, fear and confusion.

Embarrassing, rare, dirty, and scary. These are just some of the words people can associate with HPV. During the campaign people smeared myths and stigma on social media or shared our film to help raise awareness.
