Cervical cancer is one of the
most common forms of cancer that
affects women worldwide. This
disease is preventable with safe
sexual practice, and with the
breakthroughs in medicine, it
can be prevented through Human
Papilloma
Virus
(HPV)
vaccination. With the changing
sexual practices and values
towards sex, coupled with earlier
sexual debut, incidence of cervical
cancer among other disorders have
increased in the recent years. As
health professionals, it is our
responsibility to render services
and extend our expertise at the
community level.#
