Diabetes, a disease in which blood glucose levels are too high, currently affects an estimated 25.8 million Americans; costs of the disease in the U.S. amount to an estimated $174 billion annually.[5],[6] People with diabetes can live healthier lives by carefully managing their disease, including keeping tight control of blood glucose levels. Many depend on clinics and health centers for care and support. In 2011, 1.4 million people were treated with the primary diagnosis of diabetes, and 3.9 million people were seen for diabetes-related visits at clinics and community health centers.[7]

In 2012, an estimated 12,170 new cases of invasive cervical cancer were diagnosed in U.S. women.[8] Cervical cancer deaths in the U.S. declined by nearly 70 percent between 1955 and 1992 and continued declining to 2003, which is mainly attributed to the increased use of Pap test screening.[9] In 2011, 3.2 million people were screened for cervical cancer (females ages 24-64 who had at least one Pap test performed during the measurement year or during one of the previous two years) at clinics and community health centers.[10]
