Abstract

Cervical cancer became fourth most common cancer case among women in the world. There were approximately 528.000 new cases in 2012. Screening is the most proven method to prevent cervical cancer. Level of education seems to be an important predictor of cancer screening participation. Nowadays, there is a little strong evidence of this specific association. Therefore, a systematic review is necessary. This review was guided by PICO framework to identified appropriate resources for relevant study. Search of the studies were carried out by Pro-Quest and Medline, with keywords: “cervical cancer screening”, “Pap smear”, “VIA” “screening program”, “socioeconomic factors”, “educational level” and “screening participation”. From 904 studies found, 13 included for review. 11 of 13 (84,6%) reported that level of education were positively associated with women’s participation on cervical cancer screening, and only 2 studies reported that there is no association. This review conclude that women with higher educational level are more likely to participate cervical cancer screening.
