The Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer is not just another cervical cancer campaign. Instead, it is a united, global effort to raise awareness of the opportunities now available to prevent cervical cancer. Many U.S.-based womens and health advocacy organizations have joined the campaign as partners. By working together, partners involved in the campaign showcase a united front in the battle against cervical cancer. In order to achieve this, all campaign partners promote the Pearl of Wisdom as the global symbol of cervical cancer prevention to increase public recognition of the campaign in the same way the pink ribbon serves the breast cancer campaign. In addition, all campaign partners are distributing simple, consistent key messages about cervical cancer to ensure our collective voices effectively reach women.
