Cervical screening video tops 100,000 views

Our cervical screening video to help encourage young Muslim women to attend cervical screening has now reached over 100,000 views thanks to our work with Muslim Sisterhood.

You can watch the video on YouTube.

This is part of a campaign to raise awareness of cervical cancer, particularly amongst young Muslim women. It will help save lives.

On the whole, cervical cancer remains one of the few cancers that isn’t spoken about in great detail, which puts women at risk of not understanding the changes going on in their bodies.

Muslim women are at even greater risk due to cultural and religious factors preventing them from seeking medical support. This campaign features animation and a website, which serve as a resource to educate and provide support to Muslim women.

Regular screening prevents 8 out of 10 cancers from developing. Cervical screening saves 4,500 lives in England every year, so it’s important to go for a cervical screening test every time you’re invited.
