ABOUT CERVIQ

OUR ADVOCACY

Cervical cancer is a devastating disease that claims the lives of 12 women every day in the Philippines. Shockingly, this deadly disease is largely preventable. However, the lack of awareness and inadequate screening coverage are the chief causes of such high mortality rates. According to the World Health Organization, only 1% of high-risk women aged 30 to 49 years are screened for cervical cancer in the Philippines. We can change this by spreading awareness and advocating for better screening programs to save countless lives.

CerviQ initiative involves raising awareness and providing preventive screening to women in the Philippines in order to decrease the occurrence of cervical cancer cases. We collaborate with various local government units, non-governmental organizations, and private entities to carry out our missions within your community. Our ultimate objective is to educate and screen women to ensure better health outcomes.

OUR OBJECTIVE

Our mission is to eliminate cervical cancer as a cancer burden in the Philippines. We aim to achieve this by creating a digital platform that provides comprehensive and accessible cancer awareness, screening, and referral systems. Our platform will provide easy access to information about cervical cancer, including its causes, symptoms, and treatment options.

Through our digital platform, we want to encourage more women to undergo regular screenings and checkups for early detection of cervical cancer. We believe that early detection and timely treatment are crucial in reducing the mortality rate caused by cervical cancer.

Our vision is to lower the country’s cervical cancer mortality rate from 11 to less than 6 per day by 2035. We are committed to achieving this by working with healthcare professionals, government agencies, and other stakeholders to ensure that our platform is widely available and accessible to all women in the Philippines.
