Precerv is an advocacy and education resource that believes that every individual with a cervix should have access to comprehensive cervical cancer screening.
All too often, our bodies feel like a battlefield in a war that we’re never asked to lead. When it comes to our health, we need to know that decisions about our wellness will be ours to consider, to advocate for, and to make.
It wasn’t that long ago that cervical cancer was the deadliest form of cancer for individuals with a cervix. But through the widespread use of Pap and Co-testing (Pap + HPV together), cervical cancer has gone from the number one cancer killer of individuals with a cervix to number 15.¹
That’s a drastic difference, and one that can be credited to comprehensive care that puts our bodies first.
But now proposed changes to the guidelines could eliminate the Pap, leaving thousands of people vulnerable to incomplete testing that only fights half the battle.
Our mission at Precerv is to give everyone the resources they need to learn more about these proposed changes and advocate for the continued use of the Pap and Co-testing (Pap + HPV together). Through real stories, we will show how crucial it is for every individual with a cervix to have access to comprehensive, life-saving health measures.
