#SmearForSmear 2019


#SmearForSmear 2019 took place from 21 - 27 January 2019.

Smear tests aren’t easy for everyone, but they can save lives. 

The number of people going for smear tests is lower than ever. Together we can change this! We want everyone to know what a smear test is for, why they’re important and ways to make them better.
