The WVBCCSP provides clinical breast examinations (CBEs), mammograms, and Pap tests for eligible women, as well as diagnostic testing for women whose screening outcome is abnormal. Since Program inception in 1991, the WVBCCSP has enrolled over 107,000 women and provided more than 209,000 Pap tests, 136,000 mammograms, and 198,000 breast exams.
While screening services are key to early detection, their existence alone is insufficient to achieve a reduction in the illness and death associated with these diseases. As required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the WVBCCSP engages in the following activities in order to implement a comprehensive program:
- Program Management
- Screening and Diagnostic
- Education and Outreach
- Partnership and Collaboration
- Evaluation (Surveillance, Quality Assurance, and Technical Assistance)
