Reviews

Reviewer: Patient group Liga Portuguesa contra o Cancro (Portuguese League Against Cancer)
Review:

“Cervical Cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in Portuguese women under 50.

In Portugal, the HPV vaccine prevents 97% of cases, proving that there are cancers that can be prevented! 

…The Portuguese League Against Cancer launches the Cervical Cancer and HPV App as a contribution to the prevention and early diagnosis of cancers associated with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. This application meets specific accessibility criteria for the blind and visually impaired.”
