Did you know, according to the American Cancer Society:

  • Latina women are twice as likely as non-Latina white women to be diagnosed with cervical cancer
  • Latina women have the second highest mortality rate from cervical cancer
  • 85 percent of women who die from cervical cancer never had a pap smear

During Cervical Health Month, at Primary Health Care we have launched the campaign #NadieMás (not one more) because not one more woman should die from this preventable disease.

When cervical cancer is detected early it has a 93 percent survival rate, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In order to prevent or detect Cervical Cancer, there are three steps a woman should take:

  1. As a pre-teen receive the HPV vaccination.
  2. Receive an annual exam from your women’s health provider (this could include a pap smear or HPV test).

Below is the video our team created for Cervical Health Month, and the English translation.


I have a message

for all women.

Cervical cancer is preventable

with one test.


in 2018


women died.

I don’t want one to be you.

There are so many reasons for you to live.

Here are mine:

I want you to be there on my wedding day.

You are the one I call when life gets hard.

I want you to have a family of your own.

I want you to have a life full of blessings.







This year we say

not one more.

Cervical cancer is preventable.

Talk to your health provider
