Date:12/11/2009

f of the study's 1,002 respondents had "high" levels of knowledge about the human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted infection that has been linked to cervical cancer. However, African-American women knew less about the virus than white women.
  • A study of young women, ages 14 - 20, found that about 34 percent would not get the HPV vaccine because of cost.
  • A study on the Upstate Witness Project, which addresses breast cancer and cervical cancer among African-American women, found that training "witnesses" and lay health advisers to be an effective method to reach women. The program was tested in African-American churches in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson and Pickens counties.
  • A study of Latina women in South Carolina found that very few understood the purpose of the Pap test. Most Latina women sought healthcare for prenatal services.
  • Glover said the scientific articles, reports on community programs and editorials highlight the challenges of addressing cervical cancer in the Palmetto State.

    "This journal is an important step in our efforts. The work reported here by scientists, doctors and community healthcare providers will enable us to enhance our efforts to address cervical cancer in South Carolina and throughout the United States," she said.
