NATIONAL CERVICAL CANCER WEEK JANUARY 21ST -27TH 2019

 

Cervical Screening Awareness Week is an event running from 21st January -22nd January 2019. The week aims to highlight the importance of regular cervical screening for women’s health in Kenya. Cervical cancer is the top cancer killer among women in Kenya, yet it can be prevented through regular screening. Despite this, many women are disinclined to have this test done with a quarter of women responding to their screening invitation.

Cervical Screening Awareness week aims to encourage all women to have regular cervical screening as well as to provide information and reassurance around any fears or embarrassment that women may have concerning taking the test.

During the event there will be free cancer screening and cancer awareness and education. This year, we hope that more women will show up for screening, since early detection saves lives. To help fight cervical cancer, we are asking you to also attend the walk at Uhuru Park Grounds on 26th January -27th January 2019. 

Men should also attend in solidarity to our mothers, daughters, sisters, colleagues and friends. We can beat cancer. Help #STOPCERVICALCANCER this #cervicalcancerawarenessmonth
