The incidence and mortality of cervical cancer can be effectively reduced by cervical cytology screening programme
With the phased implementation of a National Health Insurance system in SA, it will become increasingly important to determine the cost of services accurately Our findings will assist health managers to price cytology services appropriately and in so doing advance the sustsainability of SA's laboratory-based cervical cytology screening programme
Thailand's Ministry of Public Health and National Health Security Office introduced a national cytology screening programme
through existing health facilities in 2005.
However, in the state sector the national cytology screening programme
has not been implemented widely.
Cervical cytology screening programme
in developed countries has reduced disease burden to some extent.
This study describes a routine anal cytology screening programme
in an urban HIV-positive population in the US to determine risk factors for abnormal anal cytology and whether an association exists between abnormal cytology and histology.
