  • Almost all cervical cancer is caused by human papillomavirus or HPV. The virus is spread by sexual activity.
  • Eighty percent of women who have been sexually active will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives.
  • Cervical screening can detect abnormal cell changes that are able to be treated before cancer even develops.

Don’t put it off – cervical screening every three years could save your life.

You have a choice about where to be screened. Discuss options with your health provider. For further information call 0800 729 729 or visit www.timetoscreen.nz
