Cervical Cancer prevention week – let’s educate and reduce the risk.

Raise awareness. Fundraise. Campaign.

Monday 21 – Sunday 27 January 2019

Do you know that cervical cancer can be prevented? The fact that cervical cancer can be prevented is something not many know about. Cervical Cancer prevention week is here to make people aware of how one can reduce the risk and pass on the message to others.


Taking up the NPV vaccination between the ages of 11-18, attending your cervical screening, finding the correct information and knowing the symptoms is all information everyone should know.

One of the best ways to protect yourself is by attending a cervical screening also known as a smear test. You will be invited by the NHS Cervical Screening Programme to attend a screening from the ages of 25 to 64. A popular question is what causes cervical cancer. Almost all instances of cervical cancer are caused by HPV (human papilloma). There are 100 types of HPV which 40 can affect the genital area. However, one in four women does not attend there cervical screening. And not many people have symptoms so you will not realise you have it which is why it is so important to attend your smear test.

So, fundraise or campaign in your local GP, community, schools and even in your home. Let’s raise awareness and get the word out to ensure more women know how they can reduce their risk of cervical cancer.
