Cervical Cancer Awareness
American Indian and Alaska Native women are nearly twice as likely to develop cervical cancer compared to White women. Regular screenings help detect cervical cancer in its early stages when it’s easier to treat.
Cervical Cancer Prevention
Cervical cancer disproportionately affects Native communities. American Indian and Alaska Native women have a much higher occurrence of cervical cancer compared to white women and are often diagnosed at its later stages; Native women across Turtle Island are more than two times as likely to die from the disease. Cervical cancer can be prevented and is highly curable when detected early. No woman should suffer from cervical cancer - regular cervical cancer screening saves lives.
