Ladies! If we want to live Wise, Well and Healthly…we must take care of ourselves!
The month of January has been designated as Cervical Health Awareness Month by the United States Congress. Although vaccines and frequent screening may prevent cervical cancer from developing, each year, more than 14,000 American women are diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer.
In an effort to raise awareness about cervical cancer, HPV disease, and the need for early detection, the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) and its many local chapters around the country dedicate the month of January to these causes. NCCC chapters host events all year long, but in January, they put extra effort into spreading the word in honor of Cervical Health Awareness Month.
Our company is dedicated to positioning women to live fulfilling lives with the right mindset. We also cherish their physical health. We want to ensure that we also provide knowledge and information to help women be in the best physical shape to contribute to becoming their best selves in God. We want to help encourage healthy, fruitful women.
Why Cervical Health Awareness Month Is Important
- It encourages women to take care of their cervical health
It encourages and educates women on the importance of maintaining cervical health. More and more women are learning about the need to consume foods high in folate and vitamin A to reduce their risk of developing cervical cancer.
- It creates awareness about H.P.V.
Both men and women should celebrate this day. Both sexes are equally at risk of contracting the Human Papillomavirus. The month of May is also used to provide information about the prevention and treatment of human papillomavirus (HPV). People are educated about H.P.V. vaccinations and therapies that help reduce symptoms in carriers since a cure is not yet available.
- Cervix screenings are conducted for young girls
Regardless of their health, all women should receive a pap screening every year to check for cervical cancer. To further emphasize the significance of HPV immunizations, special activities are held for high school students around the globe. Additionally, a Pap smear’s full function and method are described in depth.
What Can You Do?
If you want to help spread awareness about HPV and cervical cancer, you have a lot of power and influence. Ideas for Celebrating Cervical Health Awareness Month:
- Gather facts about cervical cancer
Collect data from your area’s health divisions regarding the prevalence of cervical cancer. Take notes on the most important takeaways, reproduce the data, and circulate it to other women in your community and social media channels to ensure a steady stream of knowledge.
- Organize a cervical screening
Have your school, community center, or other group organize a cervical screening camp with the support of the medical professionals in your area. Create event-specific banners and flyers for local and internet distribution. Involve your social media-savvy friends and coworkers in spreading the word about the screening.
- Participate in online events
Throughout January, medical professionals host several online podcasts and live events designed to raise awareness about cervical cancer and HPV. This January is Cervical Health Awareness Month, so try to attend at least one event. You should become knowledgeable about H.P.V., its symptoms, and novel preventative measures.
