Latinas have some good trends—and bad trends—when it comes to cervical cancer.

The Latina cervical cancer rate declined 3.9% a year from 2003 to 2012…but Latinas are still the most likely of all women to get cervical cancer.

The HPV vaccine is available and protects against cervical cancer…but the vaccine is “severely underutilized.”

How can we help?

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, to tweet how to help Latinas prevent and fight cervical cancer in honor of Cervical Health Awareness Month in January!
