IIIip Paanganik Quajisamiq: Adapting cervical cancer screening strategies for Inuit women of Nunavik
Cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates are up to three times higher than the Canadian average. Although cervical cancer is preventable through regular screening, important barriers continue to restrict Inuit women’s access to these services. PRAM supported the application of fuzzy cognitive mapping to engage Inuit women in the understanding of what needs to change to increase regular screening among communities in Nunavik.
