The theme for the Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2018 is “Reduce your risk”. Cervical cancer can be prevented. With your help we can ensure every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease and the steps they can take to look after their health.

2 Women lose their lives to the disease every day, 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day, 75% of cervical cancers can be prevented by cervical screening (smear tests). Please see our 'Latest News' section for more information.
