“During COVID-19, my wellness is a top priority for me, particularly my reproductive health. It has been recommended that cervical cancer screening tests for women include the Pap and HPV test.
Latinas are 40% more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer and 20% more likely to die from cervical cancer compared to white women.
Proposed changes to the guidelines could eliminate the Pap, leaving thousands of women vulnerable to incomplete testing. We can’t let that happen!
For the health of all women, the Pap and HPV tests should remain a part of your routine wellness screening.”
