What Is HPV?


Cervical cancer is almost 100% preventable yet it is the 2nd most common cancer among women in Nigeria.

HPV or Human papilloma virus is the main cause of cervical cancer in women.

#WhatIsHPV campaign by Cancer Aware Nigeria is aimed at saving women’s lives from cervical cancer through prevention and early detection.

You can prevent cervical cancer with the right screening test at the right time.

Cervical screening tests can find abnormal cells so they can be treated before they turn into cancer.
