Cervical Cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Ghana. Despite the numerous deaths, it is one of the few cancers that can be treated when detected early.

January is celebrated as a cervical cancer month in most parts of the world. But Ghana does not celebrate recognise it as such, or its awareness is very minimal. Meanwhile, cervical cancer is fast overtaking breast cancer which has been given much attention in recent times.

In view of that, Cervical Cancer Ambassadors GH, a Non-Governmental Organization had been established by Health professionals to help raise awareness on cervical cancer, to enable our women to leave a cervical cancer free life.

This was contained in a press release copied Newsghana.com.gh on 5th December, 2017.

JANUARY IS CERVICAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH WHICH KILLS MORE THAN 1500 WOMEN IN GHANA ANNUALLY.

Cervical Cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Ghana. Despite the numerous deaths, it is one of the few cancers that can be treated when detected early.

January is celebrated as a cervical cancer month in most parts of the world. As far as I know, Ghana does not celebrate any such month or day; if we do, it seems to be too low key. Considering that cervical cancer is fast overtaking breast cancer which has been given much attention in recent times.

Cervical Cancer Ambassadors GH is a Non-Governmental Organization established by Health professionals to help raise awareness on cervical cancer so that our women can leave in a cervical cancer free world.

We as an organization will like to appeal to all Media Houses, individuals and other stakeholders to come on board and let’s help raise more awareness on cervical cancer during this month and give it much attention to it as we did for breast cancer.

We believe that when all these measures are taken into consideration Ghana will win against cervical cancer which is being predicted by the World Health Organization that Ghana is more likely to lose more women in 2025 when proper measures are not taken into consideration.
