Cervical Health Awareness

Each year, more than 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States. Yet cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers today. In most cases cervical cancer can be prevented through early detection and treatment of abnormal cell changes that occur in the cervix years before cervical cancer develops. If you’re passionate about cervical cancer awareness, prevention, and treatment, the resources here are for you.

Advocacy around cervical health is especially relevant during national observances, including:

  • Cervical Health Awareness Month (January)
  • HPV Awareness Day (March 4)
  • Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month (September)
  • Cervical Cancer Elimination Day (November 17)
