Have you heard? There’s a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.

There's a vaccine available that provides protection against a common virus called Human Papillomavirus or HPV.  This virus can cause cervical cancer.


The HPV vaccine is offered free to Grade 4 girls in the NWT. A catch-up program will also be offered over the next 5 years for girls in grades 9-12.

HPV STUDY IN THE NWT

Pap


Background


Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted infection that causes genital warts and cancer of the cervix in some women. During regular Pap tests, samples can be also tested for presence of HPV virus. A positive HPV test only means that you have HPV in your cervix and it does not mean that you have or will develop cervical cancer.
