The Kentucky Women's Cancer Screening Program of the Department for Public Health provides breast and cervical screening and follow-up services, professional education, public education, outreach, quality assurance and surveillance. Screening and follow-up services are provided from local health care providers through contracts with local health departments. The program is funded by both state and federal funds and is part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.
Recognizing the value of screening and early detection, Congress passed the Breast and Cervical Mortality Prevention Act of 1990 which authorized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide critical breast and cervical cancer screening services to underserved women, including older women, women with low incomes and racial and ethnic minority women.
