Yin Ling Woo: Australian Center for Prevention of Cervical Cancer has funded to begin a nationwide healthcare provider awareness campaign

Yin Ling Woo, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University of Malaya, shared a post by Australian Center for Prevention of Cervical Cancer on LinkedIn:

“Wonderful to witness such initiatives to reach more women.”

Quoting Australian Center for Prevention of Cervical Cancer’s post:

“The ACPCC is pleased to announce we have been funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care to begin a nationwide healthcare provider awareness campaign ‘HPV Self-Collection: Are YOU ready to support the choice?’ This campaign aims to raise awareness among Healthcare Providers about the HPV self-collection choice for cervical screening.

HPV self-collection allows screening participants to take their own vaginal sample for HPV testing. HPV causes almost all cervical cancers.

The HPV self-collected test is just as sensitive for the detection of CIN2+/ adenocarcinoma in situ, and oncogenic HPV as a clinician-collected cervical screening test via a speculum examination.

HPV self-collection is available as an option for all routine (asymptomatic) participants in the National Cervical Screening Program. Self-collection is one of the best tools we have available
to increase cervical screening participation, address disparities and barriers in screening, and put us on track to eliminate cervical cancer in Australia by 2035.

Register for a webinar and check the resources on our new website to get up to speed on self-collection!”
