National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week 2021 will be held November 8-14 2021. The theme of the week will build on last year’s message and encourage women aged 25-72 that it is “Time to Catch Up”. With the uncertainty and impact of the pandemic, more and more women (and those with a cervix) have fallen behind in keeping up-to-date with their Cervical Screening this year. We hope to raise awareness during 8-14 November 2021 that will build on the World Health Organisation’s Vision of a world where cervical cancer is eliminated as a public health problem by 2030.

Kindly supported by Hyundai Help For Kids, ACCF is thrilled to launch the Orange Hearts Bursary Program. This program will extend our hand to give financial assistance to children of families affected by cervical cancer by providing ten $500 bursaries to children, no older than 18, from families impacted by a diagnosis of cervical cancer.
In 2020, ACCF was thrilled to partner with True Relationships & Reproductive Health (True) and Queensland Health’s Mobile Women's Health Services to encourage women to get up to date with their Cervical Screening Test in rural and regional Queensland during October and November. The campaign was called Operation Orange- Healthy Women, Healthy Community.
CerFIX2035 was created with a big ambition in mind – to see Australia become the first country to officially eliminate cervical cancer by 2035. With eradication within reach, it is more important than ever to focus on educating and empowering women about their cervical health.
National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week 2020 was held from November 16 -22. The theme of the week was “Time to Catch Up”. Thank you to everyone who got involved. From landmarks to community groups, this year we painted Australia orange in our efforts to raise awareness and funds for cervical cancer prevention and support. To everyone who painted their nails orange, donated, fundraised or went and got a screening- thank you!
