It does not discriminate

Cervical cancer has been definitively linked to the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and impacts women in the prime of their life. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. Cervical cancer kills women, leaves children motherless, devastates families and cripples communities.

Cervical cancer impacts women in the prime of their life, typically between the ages of 30-50 years. It is a disease that preys on women with the least resources, those who are marginalized, immigrant, Aboriginal, women of colour or low-income, whether they live here in Canada or in developing nations.
