The Department of Health (DOH), global pharmaceutical company MSD, and medical societies hope to go full circle for this year’s Cervical Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM)in May, and strike directly at the source of cervical cancer—the human papillomavirus or HPV.
HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in both men and women. It is the virus that generally causes cervical cancer. According to the World Health Organization, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer afflicting women worldwide with about 500,000 new cases and approximately 250,000 deaths each year.
In the Philippines, an estimated 12 Filipino women die due to cervical cancer each day.
For these reasons, the DOH and MSD, along with medical societies Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society (POGS), Society of Gynecologic Oncologists of the Philippines (SGOP), and Philippine Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (PSCPC), continue with their partnership, dubbed as Babae, MahalagaKa!, for the 6th year of the Cervical Cancer Awareness Month celebration.
Free cervical cancer screening will be offered to women 21 years old and above in 58 DOH-retained hospitals nationwide for the whole month of May.

Uratex, the country’s leading foam and mattress brand, and OUR|HOME, the country’s leading lifestyle furniture store chain, launches today a special Mother's Day promotion called "Best Mattress for Best Mom." In recognition of their unconditional love and hardships in raising their children and running a home,
Dubbed "Un Regalo Delicato" (One Delicate Gift), this stylishly themed yet simple kick-off event held today at the V-Mall, Greenhills Shopping Center store of OUR|HOME, a contemporary furniture store for stylish living, gathers select guests from both the upscale market and lifestyle media—all hailed via a red-carpet treatment with free flowing wine and cocktails amid the lively vibe of the newly renovated store.
This month of May, we look forward to making Mother’s Day celebration more special to honor our moms. On this day, we make our moms feel more loved with gifts, poems, flowers or even simple “Happy Mother’s Day” text messages. However, with touch devices and apps in hand, we can now greet our moms in a more creative and modern way.
With this in mind, Microsoft
and McDonald’s Philippines
announced their partnership today to enable kids to use technology in expressing
their love and gratitude to their moms this Mother’s Day through a promo called
‘Paint and Celebrate’.
The idea behind ‘Paint and Celebrate’ was brought by how technology has greatly affected our lives nowadays. Kids are often on their mobile devices where everything is a touch or tap away. Gone are the days when they created artworks with their bare hands and watercolors. But with ‘Paint and Celebrate’, moms can still receive heartwarming greeting cards from the creative hands of their kids. This initiative will also reinforce kids to use their gadgets not just for gaming but for building a stronger bond with their moms.
