Awareness campaigns for ovarian and cervical cancer have had success in the news and on social media, especially in September when many countries recognize Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month.

Uterine cancer (also called endometrial or womb cancer) doesn’t get the same media attention.

Our network partners have decided its time to put a spotlight on uterine cancer, using the month of June to focus our collective efforts.

Uterine cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer among women residing in high-income countries.

And unlike many other cancers, the incidence and death rates are rising.

The number of deaths from this disease has been increasing by almost 2 percent each year, with even sharper spikes among Asian, Hispanic, and Black women in the United States.
