ACCF is pleased to announce the launch of the Cervical Health Information Line, in partnership with Women’s Health Queensland Wide. This is the first initiative of ACCF’s CerviCAN Support Program, created to assist and support Queensland women and their families with advice and information about cervical cancer and cervical screening.
