Cervical Cancer Awareness Week

About Awareness Week

Cervical Cancer Awareness Week (13-19 November 2023) is the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation’s (ACCF) annual flagship communication campaign across Australia. We are grateful for our partners CSL Seqirus and Hologic for helping us make cervical cancer a thing of the past in Australia.

This year, our theme is: 1+5 = Cervical cancer protection 

With changes to our national programs, preventing cervical cancer has never been easier or more accessible. All that is required is one (1) dose of HPV vaccine for young people PLUS cervical screening every five (5) years for women and people with a cervix from age 25–74 years.   

Campaign objectives: 

  • Put cervical cancer, and available prevention options, on the public radar 
  • Highlight the continuity of protection against cervical cancer that is available to Australians with:
    • vaccination now funded for anyone with a cervix up to and including those 25 years, and 
    • cervical screening recommended from 25–74 years.
