Professor Geetanjali Dabral Datta and her research team from Harvard School of Public Health, Boston has found social disparities occur in cervical cancer screening for women. Cervical cancer can be detected early by Pap smear test, which proves to be a very useful and sensitive test for early detection of cervical cancer and early cervical cancer is easily curable compared to late stage cancer. Researchers conducted a Black women's health study in Boston in 40,000 African American women and found that African-American women who are economically poor had low cervical cancer screening. The study results show that ethical and economic disparities are high in health care sector and there has to be an increase in cancer awareness among black women and economically backward class women to effectively increase cancer screening and control cancer.
