Cervical cancer is preventable. It is curable if detected at early stages.

In conjunction with the Ministry of Health in El Salvador, PAHO developed a three-dimensional job aide to assist doctors and nurses with counseling patients prior to screening and when returning positive Pap results. These images show the outside and inside panels of the job aide; the panels fold into 3 sides and can be connected at the edge to form a triangular standing material.
