Proposed Project

Intervention Development to Increase Cervical Cancer Screening Among Mexican Women: Phase 2—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Differences in incidence of invasive cervical cancer exist among some minority populations. Among women older than 29 years cervical cancer incidence for Hispanic women is approximately twice that for non-Hispanic women. Papanicolaou (Pap) tests can help detect cervical cancer. Nevertheless, recent studies suggest that Hispanic women in the United States and Puerto Rico under-use cervical cancer screening tests. Additionally, survey data have shown that Hispanic women in the international border region of the United States under-utilize these Pap tests compared to non-Hispanic women in the same region. The need exists to increase Pap test screening among Hispanic women living in the United States.

The purpose of this project is to develop and validate a multi-component behavioral intervention to increase cervical cancer screening among U.S. and foreign-born Mexican women. The proposed study will use focus groups and personal interviews. There will be no cost to respondents.
