Client-Oriented Interventions to Increase Breast, Cervical, and Colorectal Cancer Screening

From left to right in a row: a pink ribbon, a stylized blue star and a teal ribbon with the words, “Raising Awareness” above the image and the words, “Breast, Colorectal and Cervical Cancer” below.Interventions for clients either provide education to increase cancer screening or make it easier for clients to be screened. Results are reported separately for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening because routine screening recommendations differ by age and sex.
