Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2024

Cervical Screening Awareness Week takes place from June 10-16, 2024. Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina.

Here are some important facts:

🔍 Early Detection: Regular cervical screenings (smear tests) can detect abnormal cells before they develop into cancer.

🛡️ Prevention: Cervical screening can prevent up to 75% of cervical cancers.

👥Eligibility: In many countries, women and people with a cervix aged 25-64 are invited for regular screenings.

📅 Frequency: Screenings are typically recommended every 3-5 years, depending on age and medical guidelines.

💉Vaccination: The HPV vaccine, given to young people, helps reduce the risk of cervical cancer.
