Event Details

Commonwealth Cervical Cancer Awareness Webinar.

Get Informed, Get Screened, Get Vaccinated.

31st January 2024 15.00 to 16.00 GMT

January marks Cervical Cancer Awareness Month and it is an important opportunity for the Commonwealth and its partners to share evidence-based information, promote vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) and screening, focusing on the goal of ending cervical cancer within a few generations. Accurate and reliable health information is a cornerstone of effective public health. Conversely, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that misinformation, misconceptions, and myths spread fast and have substantial negative impacts on population health, such as by reducing confidence in vaccines or promoting unproven cancer treatments
