Cervical Cancer Prevention

giahcAMWA and the Global Initiative Against HPV and Cervical Cancer (GIAHC) are launching a cervical cancer prevention education initiative which will be targeted at young girls, boys, women, and men.  We have created a toolkit with talking points, a power point presentation, an interactive game, and a fact sheet. To lead an event in your community, contact associatedirector@amwa-doc.org and download the materials which are available to AMWA members (you must be logged into the AMWA website to access the files).  Report back to us and join our cervical cancer education community!
