Cervical cancer in the Philippines ranks among the second most common cancer in women. About eleven (11) Filipino women die from this preventable disease each day. The causes pans out from the lack of HPV immunization, failure of cervical screening and treatment, and lack of awareness and the inadequacy of facilities and expertise.
