Screening for cervical cancer in emergency centers and sexually transmitted disease clinics.
Low-income women are at increased risk of developing cervical cancer compared with middle- and upper-income women.
How can poor women be reached for screening and early diagnosis of cervical cancer and its precursor stages?
One answer to this question is based on the observation that a high percentage of the unscreened population has received some form of medical care within the previous 5 years.
Emergency centers and sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics often provide such care to patients who lack a regular source of health care.
