Regular Pap tests can save your life!
Every week in Ontario, about ten women will be diagnosed with cancer of the cervix, and three will die from this disease. But the fact is that most cases of cervical cancer can be prevented with a simple, effective screening test, called the Pap test.
Last fall, the Health Unit, in partnership with the Ontario Cervical Screening Program, Canadian Cancer Society, local Community Health Centres and Community Primary Health Care, delivered four Pap test clinics. This service was offered to women who were due to have a Pap test and who did not have a doctor or nurse practitioner.
Thirty-three (33) women had Pap tests at these clinics. One hundred per cent of participants were satisfied with the clinics and thought the locations and times were convenient.
