Cervical Cancer is Preventable!
- The vaccine against the human papillomavirus (HPV) is effective and safe. It protects against infection with HPV, which causes cervical cancer.
- All adult women should undergo periodic cervical cancer screening via a Pap smear test to detect lesions in the cervix that, if left untreated, can develop into cervical cancer. Pap smear tests are available free of charge in all health centres in Trinidad and Tobago. Contact your local health centre for more details.
