About the Center

Donate today and support our programs

The American Sexual Health Association (ASHA) created the National HPV and Cervical Cancer Prevention Resource Center to address the lack of nationally available HPV and cervical cancer prevention information and resources. The Center is dedicated to addressing the multiple issues and challenges associated with HPV and cervical cancer prevention in the United States.

In recent years ASHA has dedicated many resources, research and support systems to help people concerned about genital HPV. These efforts include national advocacy, hotline and website services, publications, and support groups. One of our most expansive current programs is the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC). Originally founded in 1996 as grassroots organization dedicated to serving women with, or at risk for, cervical cancer and HPV disease, NCCC now operates as a program of ASHA and continues to help women, family members and caregivers battle the personal issues related to cervical cancer and HPV and to advocate for cervical health in all women by promoting prevention through education about early vaccination, Pap testing and HPV testing when recommended.

The resource center is here for you!
