Comments Cervical cancer should be an almost entirely preventable disease. It’s one of the few cancers which has an established screening program and the only cancer which currently has a vaccine; and yet over 280,000 women each year die from cervical cancer. The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation created the Community Awareness Program to raise awareness about the preventability of cervical cancer, and the importance the vaccine and regular screening plays in the fight against it. Through passionate and dedicated volunteer speakers, the Community Awareness Program is a 15-30 minute presentation about cervical cancer, HPV and the steps you can take to prevent it. The presentation also covers the important life-saving work ACCF undertakes in developing countries delivering the vaccine and screening to girls & women who need it most. Cassandra Deon is NSW coordinator of engagment and education programs for Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.
