Cervical cancer remains one of South Africa's biggest women's health problems, affecting 1 out of 41 South African women. It is estimated that this disease kills approximately 8 women in the country every day*. The World Health Organisation projects that this number will increase to about 12 deaths per day in 2025. These alarming statistics should be seen in the context of cervical cancer being a preventable disease.
