The BC Cancer Agency’s Dr. David Boyes became the first in the world to establish a free cervical screening program for all B.C. women over the age of 20. It has led to a decline of over 70 per cent in the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer. The program remains a model for cancer control around the world.
