Factors associated with participation in the organized cervical cancer screening program in the greater Paris area (France): An analysis among more than 200,000 women

Abstract : We aimed to identify the contextual factors associated with participation in the organized Cervical Cancer Screening (CCS) pilot program, which includes specific interventions to reach vulnerable women, in the Greater Paris region. Study population consisted of 231,712 women aged 25–65 years, who were not up to date to their smear test and had been invited to take part in the program from July 2014 to September 2017. Using a multilevel mixed logistic regression with random effects, we investigated the effect of grassroots interventions targeting vulnerable women, healthcare provider accessibility, social environment and municipal policy-related factors. The CCS rate was two times higher in women who had received their first invitation to the program during the study period (32·9%) compared to those who were already invited before the study period (15·3%). In both populations, there were no significant trends in participation with regards to the type of grassroots interventions, level of accessibility of healthcare services or municipal commitment to healthcare. Among women invited previously and aged above 35 increased participation was seen in neighborhoods with low proportion of single women or in less deprived neighborhoods. Our results identified groups of women who participated less in the organized CCS program and suggested that additional interventions targeting the barriers faced by vulnerable women, especially those aged 35–45 years old, are needed.
