The Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-354) established the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The program provides breast and cervical cancer screening exams to underserved women, including those who are older, have low incomes, or are members of racial and ethnic minority groups. The program operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 6 U.S. territories, and 12 American Indian/ Alaska Native organizations.
