The experience of developed countries indicates that up to 80 per cent of cervical cancer incidence and mortality can be prevented through organized prevention programmes. That is why in 2008 The Ministry of health of the nation relaunched the national program for the Prevention of cervical-uterine cancer. The final purpose of the National Program is to reduce the incidence and mortality from cervical-uterine cancer in Argentina.
One of the objectives of the National Programme is to strengthen the provincial programmes by establishing an organized prevention strategy that unifies the criteria for action while taking into account the particular needs of each province, and to this end, it works in conjunction with the references of the provincial programmes for the strengthening of measures to prevent cervical uterine cancer in each and every jurisdiction.
Some of these other conditions are also called secondary
The national program for the Prevention of cervical-uterine cancer is an integrated system in which women access screening not only opportunistically, but are invited through active search strategies, receive and understand the results, are referred for treatment if necessary, and return to repeat the PAP as indicated in the program guidelines. And this, because the program pursues a variety of goals: quality coverage of the decision quality of reading of the cytology follow-up and treatment of precancerous lesions and cancer;
The first level has a prominent place in the hedging strategy, as it is considered that the high coverage of women at higher risk of developing the disease is the main mechanism to increase the quantitative impact of screening and the target population are women between 35 and 64 years. It is hoped that the first level will be able to collaborate strongly in the active search for women, inviting them to perform the PAP as often as the National Program establishes and facilitating the meeting between women and professionals in the return of results and their follow-up and treatment, if necessary.
The screening strategy of the National Program recommends conducting a Pananicolaou test (PAP) every 3 years after two consecutive negative Pap. Some of these other conditions are also called secondary conditions and may include the following: some of these other conditions are also called secondary conditions and may include the following: urinary and intestinal problems
Fatigue. Injury. Mental health problems and depression. Overweight and obesity
Pain. Pressure sores or ulcers. Bladder and intestines. Some disabilities, such as spinal cord injuries, can affect the person’s urinary and intestinal functioning. Fatigue. Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy. It can affect the way a person thinks and feels. It can also interfere with a person’s daily activities. Injury.

People with disabilities who need to stay in bed or who use a wheelchair are at risk of developing pressure sores. Other diseases or health problems and their prevention.
Many chronic diseases and disability-related conditions can be prevented. Chronic diseases are among the most frequent and costly health problems, although many can be prevented. Some chronic diseases can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle, visiting health care providers for preventive purposes and routine screening, and learning to control health problems.

All persons, regardless of sex, age
Cancer. Screening for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers performed in the recommended manner helps to detect these diseases at an early stage, when their chances of treatment are often higher. Research suggests that women with disabilities are less likely to be screened for breast and cervical cancer as recommended. Some of the reasons women point out include lack of access to adequate facilities and equipment, and having to focus on other health problems.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) affects more than one million people in the United States. It is four times more common in women than in men.
