(Yellowknife – January 23, 2023) During Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, the NTHSSA invites those who are due for a cervical cancer screening (Pap) test to attend the clinic at the Yellowknife Primary Care Clinic on Saturday, January 28, 2023. People with cervixes should begin cervical cancer screening at age 21, or 3 years after becoming sexually active; whichever comes first.
This event aims to:
- Provide an opportunity for those eligible to get tested
- Efficiently meet demands for this service and reduce wait times to see a healthcare provider
- Test new and innovative ways to more efficiently serve patients as healthcare staffing issues continue to impact access to care and services
- Promote and provide information on the importance of cervical health
