January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. An estimated 14,100 women in the United States received a diagnosis of cervical cancer and 4,280 died from the disease last year, according to the National Cancer Institute. Increasing HPV vaccination efforts and routine screening are key components in preventing cervical cancer and identifying and treating cervical cancer early.
We’ve curated a list of cervical cancer resources you can use throughout this month and beyond to promote awareness of cervical cancer screening.
