The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) helps low-income, uninsured, and under-served women gain access to lifesaving screening programs for early detection of breast and cervical cancers. The NBCCEDP program provides clinical breast examinations, mammograms, and Pap tests for eligible women who participate in the program as well as diagnostic testing for women whose screening outcome is abnormal. Currently, the NBCCEDP funds all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 5 U.S. territories, and 11 American Indian/Alaska Native tribes or tribal organizations to provide screening services for breast and cervical cancer.


National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) is administered by Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
