All Women Count! Program

The All Women Count! Program (AWC!) is a cooperative effort between health professionals, The South Dakota Department of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control to encourage screening for breast and cervical cancer.

The purpose of cancer screening is to detect cancer in its earliest stage so it can be treated or cured. Screening for breast cancer involves a breast examination and a breast X-ray called a mammogram. Screening for cervical cancer involves a pelvic examination and a sample from the cervix called a Pap smear.
