Give your cervix some screen time

Young New Zealand women are being encouraged to look after their cervix in a powerful media campaign designed to encourage regular cervical screening from 25 years of age.

The ‘Give your cervix some screen time’ campaign aims to help anyone with a cervix feel informed, empowered and motivated to protect their body and future health through regular cervical screening.

The cervix is tucked away – out of sight, out of mind. It’s easy to ignore and forget. But we want to change that.

Most cervical cancer can be prevented with regular cervical screens. Cervical screening also protects your future reproductive health, whakapapa and whānau wellbeing.
