The need for quick and timely intervention to prevent cervical cancer prevalence among the risk population and to reduce incidence and mortality rate due to cervical cancer is one of the object of Health promotion. The standard practice to reduce the frequency and mortality of cervical cancer is to screen the target population, ensure vaccination and to ensure prompt intervention. This descriptive survey determined cervical cancer education for sustainable development in South West, Nigeria. The sample for this study comprises of 600 respondents selected through multi stage sampling technique in South West, Nigeria. The variables studied include: knowledge of cervical cancer prevention, attitude towards screening vaccination and cultural heritage. The research instrument used was a self structured questionnaire, while student t-test, correlation analysis and ANOVA were used to test the formulated hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The result revealed that all identified variables significantly influence the cervical cancer prevention. It is therefore recommended that cervical cancer education should be included in the school curriculum and all reproductive activities in the clinical setting to enhance early reporting ,reduce morbidity and mortality due to cervical cancer
