In a joint second survey with the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health (NPWH), we surveyed more than 750 HCPs and 1,000 women on cervical cancer screening behaviors and attitudes.

The new results show that a significant majority of health care providers (HCPs) and women consider co-testing using both the Pap test and HPV test together to be important to managing overall health.
