PPRM's 24 health centers in Colorado offer preventive reproductive health care, including routine cervical cancer screenings and the HPV vaccine, which protects against the types of HPV that most often cause cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers. Last year alone, PPRM provided nearly 17,200 cervical cancer screenings to women across its four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Southern Nevada and Wyoming. Women should get annual Pap tests starting at age 21, or within three years of becoming sexually active, whichever occurs first.
As the region's most trusted provider of reproductive health care, more than 127,000 clients annually depend on PPRM for quality, affordable health care.
