The HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening for early detection can prevent cervical cancer and save lives. In Kenya, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women and the most common cause of cancer deaths.

This Cervical Cancer Awareness Month we have helped Nanyuki Cancer Support Group to raise awareness of cervical cancer and offer screening for women in Laikipia County. In previous years the group found that the fear of turning out positive after screening drove people away from attending screenings, so volunteers have worked hard to reach women with accurate information about cervical cancer and explain the benefits of early screening.
