Live Free of Cervical Cancer

Every day, women choose to stop cervical cancer by taking advantage of simple prevention measures: the new cervical cancer vaccine, the Pap test and the HPV test. This Web site includes easy-to-understand information about these preventive measures and how they can stop cervical cancer, which can cause death, disability and the inability to have children. This information begins on the cervical cancer prevention and early detection page.

The state of Illinois provides free or low-cost screening and treatment services for uninsured, low-income women, as well as insurance programs for individuals having difficulty purchasing private insurance due to pre-existing conditions. Review these services and programs to see if you are eligible.

This Web site will help medical, education and social services professionals learn more about cervical cancer epidemiology and training opportunities, as well as to find technical information about the vaccine, screenings and treatment. You may use this Web site's helpful Communication Toolkit to educate women about cervical cancer prevention and early detection.

Illinois Women Against Cervical Cancer is a group of concerned individuals and organizations including the Illinois Department of Public Health Center for Minority Health Services, the Illinois Public Health Association, Access Community Health Network, and Springfield Urban League. Our goal is to eliminate cervical cancer by educating women about prevention and early detection.
