#SmearForSmear 2020 is here! It's Cervical Cancer Prevention Week (20-26 January) and we're asking you to help us get 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. Together, we can change this.
You can help by sharing a share a smear on social media. Whether it’s a lipstick selfie or a myth about HPV, we want to get people talking about HPV and smear tests. You can use one of our graphics or create one of your own. Smear your makeup, paint, whatever you have - it’s up to you!
