MSD Philippines and DOH go full circle for 6th Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

The Department of Health (DOH), in a public-private partnership with MSD Philippines and medical societies, is now in its sixth year of raising awareness and providing free cervical cancer screening programs nationwide. For the sixth run of its Cervical Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) activities this May, both the DOH and MSD are going beyond just screening. This year, the awareness is going full circle — from prevention to treatment.

Free cervical cancer screening will be offered to women aged 30-49 years old in 58 DOH-retained hospitals nationwide for the whole month of May.

Apart from free screenings nationwide, MSD, in partnership with DOH, will be providing free quadrivalent HPV vaccinations to 9,000 girls aged 13 years old this coming school year.

Know more about HPV, cervical cancer, screening and vaccination, and the Cervical Cancer Awareness Month from your local health centers. Cervical cancer awareness aims to educate Filipino women on prevention and treatment from dangers of cervical cancer. Eating healthy facts, maintaining an active lifestyle and getting the right information are some ways to battle cervical cancer. Screening is recommended for women to prevent early signs, get hold of the free programs offered by our health department.
