Cervical Screening Awareness Week

Cervical Screening Awareness Week

Every eligible woman and person with a cervix should have the opportunity to attend cervical screening. 

Join the campaign to make that happen.

We want:

  • Every woman to understand why the test is important
  • Every eligible woman to be able to attend
  • Encourage action to make the test more accessible

Barriers to cervical screening can make it difficult to attend

We know attending is not always easy and some people find it difficult for many reasons. During Cervical Screening Awareness Week we will be addressing some of the different barriers and talking about how cervical screening can be made easier for more women and people with a cervix to attend.

From struggling to book an appointment to feeling unsure or anxious, or not understanding why it is important, we want every woman to know where they can find support and tips.

Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2018

Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) runs from Monday 11 – Sunday 17 June 2018. Cervical screening prevents 75% of cervical cancers from developing yet one in four women don’t attend. You can help us change this!

We want to increase awareness and make it easier for everyone to take up their smear test invitation.

How to get involved

Join the conversation

Help us reach as many people as possible to highlight how important cervical screening is in protecting against cervical cancer by joining the conversation on social media. Together we can make sure everyone with a cervix knows #SmearTestsSaveLives and address the difficulties some people face.

Use the hashtag #SmearTestsSaveLives to share with your loved ones the importance of smear tests in preventing cervical cancer and share your experiences.
