National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week 2022

National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week 2022

Together we can #MakeCervicalCancerHistory – will you help?

Australia has led the world in cervical cancer prevention for the last 20 years and now, we are close to becoming the first country to eliminate it.

National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week provides a strong platform to raise continued awareness of cervical cancer and unite Australians to take action to help Australia make cervical cancer history.

This National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week we aim to:

  • Remind Australians of our trailblazing efforts in cervical cancer prevention, meaning elimination is now within reach
  • Reinforce the need to maintain best practice in preventative measures
  • Keep the cervical cancer elimination timeline on the national health agenda
  • Support efforts to improve equity in access to cervical cancer prevention measures for women and people with a cervix to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on elimination.

Everyone can play a role in helping make cervical cancer history. This includes:

Women and people with a cervix aged 25-74

Ensure you are enrolled in the National Cervical Screening Program and screened every five years.

Speak to a healthcare provider if any symptoms arise between screenings.

Parents of young people aged 12-18

Ensure all your children get their full course of vaccination at school or see their GP (or accredited immunisation provider) for any missed vaccination doses.

Governments, organisations and individuals

Help amplify our key messages that promote best practice in cervical cancer prevention and ensure every Australian knows that we have the opportunity to make cervical cancer history.
