MORAN, Flavia; CARCAMO, César; VALDERRAMA, María  and  GARCIA, Patricia J.. Preferences and satisfaction towards a screening program with self-administered human papilloma virus detection tests. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.2, pp.228-232. ISSN 1726-4634.

Cross-sectional study describing preferences and satisfaction towards a cervical cancer screening program with selfadministered rapid tests for the detection of human papillomavirus (HPV). Of 2 090 users picked by the program in Ventanilla Callao - Peru, 97 were randomly selected to be surveyed. In addition, interviews were conducted with women leaders of the community, in charge of providing the evidence. 74.2% of the users felt, at least, satisfied with the program. 68% of women prefer to take the test, mainly by demanding less time. Of women who prefer to take the test at the Health Center, 90.3% do so for the safety of the test being done correctly. The inclusion of community leaders in the program allowed a good diffusion of the test and the steps to carry it out.

Keywords : Mass Screening; Human Papillomavirus DNA Tests; Point-of-Care Testing; Self administration; Patient Satisfaction.
