Breast and Cervical Cancer Program

The Center for Cancer Prevention and Control of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene receives a cooperative agreement from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The purpose of this program is to increase breast and cervical cancer screening levels among uninsured, low income women statewide, to provide follow-up to diagnosis, to carry out public and professional education, to assure the quality of screening services, to monitor the cancer problem in Maryland, and to carry out evaluation of these programs. The federal legislation requires the state to provide matching funds of at least one dollar for every three dollars of federal funds. Funds under this program cannot be used to pay for treatment services.
