In January 2000, the Cervical Cancer Prevention & Education Initiative (CCPEI) was launched by the Office of Women's Health because cervical cancer can be prevented, yet Los Angeles County women are diagnosed at nearly three times the national rate.

Cervical cancer disproportionately affects Latinas, African American and Korean women in Los Angeles County. Too often, poverty or lack of awareness keeps them from getting regular screenings that can prevent cervical cancer or result in early treatment. Late stage diagnosis is expensive and too often fatal.

The goals of this initiative are to make more women aware that cervical cancer is preventable with a routine Pap test; to increase the number of women screened; increase access to screening, follow-up, and treatment; and lower the stage at which cervical cancer is diagnosed.
