Every hour in Nigeria, women die of cervical cancer, a disease that is largely preventable thanks to annual Pap Smear and HPV vaccination. Unfortunately, a lot of people; do not go for their yearly screenings, have not had the vaccination and do not know that early detection is key to increasing survival rates. It is very important that we educate everyone about the disease, its symptoms and ways to prevent and treat it.
The Exquisite Magazine Cervical Cancer Prevention Week provides us with an opportunity to do just that! January 2017 is the global cervical cancer awareness month and February 4th, 2017 is World Cancer Day and there’s no better time to go for a screening and create awareness about this than now!
