How did we adapt a cervical cancer screening program for a new audience?

Adapting AMIGAS for African American women never and rarely screened for cervical cancer

Among the major ethnic groups in the United States, Hispanic women have the highest rate of cervical cancer, but African American women are more likely to die of this disease.

Cervical cancer screening is a critical first in obtaining treatment. Screening helps health care providers to identify women who have cervical cancer and connect them with cancer treatment. However, providing cervical cancer screening to women who do not have ready access to health care services can be difficult.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asked Westat to adapt a successful cervical cancer screening program for use with African American women.
