Cervical Cancer and HPV Awareness

Each year in the U.S., over 11,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer and over 4,000 women will die. Half of all cervical cancers occur in women who have never had a Pap test.  Cervical cancer is highly curable when found early.

Almost all cervical cancer is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV vaccines can prevent two known cervical cancer causing strains of HPV when administered before exposure. The HPV vaccines can prevent agains 70% of cervical cancers. Each year in the US there are an estimanted new 33,000 cases of HPV-associated cancers each year.

We encourage you to join the fight against cancer and use the following materials in your organization and community to increase awareness and the importance of prevention of this disease. Together we can make a difference!
