CHC: Creating Healthier Communities awards funds to Georgia communities to help prevent one of the most common forms of cancer

Creating Healthier Communities (CHC) announced three new partnerships addressing cervical cancer prevention efforts in Augusta, Macon, Savannah, and the surrounding counties. The multi-faceted collaboration, consisting of community-based nonprofit organizations, community leaders, local corporations and health centers will reach community members with primary prevention information related to human papillomavirus (HPV) and increase the number of individuals referred for HPV prevention.

Cervical cancer—the fourth most common cancer among women worldwide— is primarily caused by HPV. Cancers caused by HPV are preventable. Interventions, including HPV vaccination, could prevent more than 90% of cancers caused by HPV from ever developing.
