Today starts another round of cervical cancer screening
From February 28th till March 3rd, the fourth round of cervical cancer screening will be conducted for women between 30 and 60 years old. Women in that age group who didn’t get the chance to participate in previous rounds are invited to take part in the screening.

Thanks to the cervical cancer screening program on human papillomavirus (HPV) precancerous stages of cervical cancer can be detected at an earlier stage and making the disease fairly treatable. The screening is conducted by the Public Health Prevention Clinic in collaboration with the Sint Eustatius Health Care Foundation and RIVM, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment.
