Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

This January, Over six days, 23-29 2023, is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, and we’re supporting Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust to raise awareness of cervical cancer and how one day we can make it a thing of the past!

The HPV vaccination and cervical screening can help stop cervical cancer. We want to encourage uptake and share the facts to help you reduce your risk of cervical cancer. 

You can play your part too. Get involved, show support on social media, tell your friends, go for screening. Join the campaign: www.jostrust.org.uk/ccpw 

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is the UK’s leading cervical cancer charity. It provides information and support to anyone affected and campaigns for excellence in cervical cancer treatment, care and prevention. Its national Helpline is free, confidential and on 0808 802 8000

Cervical Cancer

  • There are around 3,200 new cervical cancer cases in the UK annually, nearly nine every day (2016-2018).
  • In females in the UK, cervical cancer is the 14th most common cancer, with around 3,200 new cases yearly (2016-2018).
  • Cervical cancer accounts for 2% of all new cancer cases in females in the UK (2016-2018).
  • Cervical cancer incidence rates are likely to fall in future decades, according to projections accounting for the expected impact of HPV vaccination.
  • An estimated 34,800 women who had previously been diagnosed with cervical cancer were alive in the UK at the end of 2010.

Getting any injection is scary. But once it’s over and done with you, forget about it and protect yourself against a potentially life-threatening disease.

So what can you do to help? Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust needs you to help them express to people how important it is to your health and well-being to attend a screening.

Start in your community! Distribute posters and postcards where people are likely to see the images – places like your local GP practice or library. The female toilets in your workplace would also be a great idea if your employer allows it.

Alternatively, perhaps you’ve been touched by cervical cancer? Maybe you have just received your diagnosis and need support.

Use #WeCan and #CervicalCancerPreventionWeek; we can end cervical cancer.
