“…Provide screening to women due to the fact that the majority of our Navajo women who are diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer but the life expectancy rate, once a woman is diagnosed, is less than the national average, which for Navajo is less than 5 years …”
purpose for cervical cancer screening
Purpose for Cervical Cancer Screening
  • “Pap smear screening is recommended annually for most women ages 18 & over. It is the goal of the Navajo Nation Breast & Cervical Cancer Prevention Program (NNBCCPP) to promote cervical cancer screening through increased participation of women 18 to 64 in Pap testing, which for most Native American women residing in the Navajo area would be provided through Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities. It is also the goal of the NNBCCPP to promote prompt follow-up of any abnormal results & case management services for tracking subsequent testing & treatment & improving patient understanding and follow-up.”
