Cervical Cancer killed more than 16,000 women in Nigeria, in 2014. This is indicative of a rising trend in cervical cancer
specific mortality.Why are the rates low in developed countries? They’ve been able to follow steps to ensure that cervical
cancer is prevented and detected on time by:
1. Conducting regular Cervical Cancer Tests
2. Providing HPV vaccine AKA Cervical Cancer Vaccine to women.
We have decided to launch a Campaign called ARM YOURSELF AGAINST CERVICAL CANCER. Now you can get the vaccine in Lagos,
Abuja, Port Hacourt and Enugu. This will subsequently spread to other cities in the country.
There are two vaccines that protect against HPV; this is the main infective agent that cause cervical cancer.These are the
Cervarix and Gardasil vaccines. Both are given in three doses over a period of 6months and they cost N30,000 and N45,000
respectively (for all doses). Individuals(including children) 8 years and above can receive the vaccines.Cervarix protects
against HPV strains that cause cervical cancer while Gardasil also protects against other HPV strains which cause anal cancer
and genital warts. Cervarix is indicated for females while both genders can receive the Gardasil vaccine.
