Each year, more than 14,000 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States.
This cancer is especially hurting communities of color, with Latinas at a high risk of a diagnosis.
But cervical cancer is preventable.
Stopping cervical cancer for Latinas and all communities means equitable education about the causes, prevention, and treatment of HPV and cervical cancer.
