Between July and December 1993, the Hopi Department of Health Services, in collaboration with the Arizona Cancer Center (AZCC), conducted a population-based study of cervical cancer risk factors, screening practices, and predictors of Pap test utilization among American Indian women age 18 years and older living on the Hopi reservation in northern Arizona. This survey, entitled the Healthy Hopi Women's Study, involved a stratified random sample of households from each of the 11 Hopi villages. The final study sample was 559 completed face-to-face interviews. This article reports on unpublished findings of the survey and discusses how the Hopi utilized the study's findings to develop a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded breast and cervical cancer program.
