Early detection, appropriate intervention, and adequate followup treatment make cervical cancer one of the most preventable of all diseases.
The authors propose a project designed to increase knowledge and awareness of cervical cancer and its prevention and ultimately to decrease morbidity and mortality rates for cervical cancer in black and Latino inner-city communities of Boston.
During a 3-year project the authors hope to reach about 500 high-risk women who currently do not have access to health care services.
The interventions would be based in the Boston, MA, community areas of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain, specifically in those neighborhoods served by a designated community health center.
