The logo: An abstract-multicolor form of the “atom symbol” speaks to the energy driving the collaboration between individuals and organizations dedicated to the eradication of HPV-related cancers, specifically cervical cancer, through education, screening and early treatment. The traditional pink/female and blue/male colors, alongside other transitional colors, signify inclusiveness.
