Abstract

The midwives perceived inequalities in access to and utilization of the Cervical Cancer Prevention Program that are associated to individual characteristics of women, and contextual characteristics such as the geographical environment where they live and Program's infrastructure. There is inequality of access to care of underrepresented groups of women such as immigrant women and those residing in rural areas.
