Abstract

Background: Cervical cancer (CC) is the second most common cancer in women in the world after breast cancer. Objective: To assess the level of knowledge, attitude and practice related to cervical cancer prevention and associated factors among women of childbearing age in the commune of Malanville. Method: Analytical, cross-sectional observational study with prospective data collection among women in Malanville from February 1 to July 31, 2023. Result: three hundred women were surveyed. The mean age of the women surveyed was 28.13 years ±11.02 years with the extremes of 15 and 63 years. In general, 5% of respondents had an average level of knowledge about cervical cancer. 5.3% of the women surveyed had a fair level of attitude. 2.7% of them had an acceptable level of practice. Age (p=0.001), marital status (p=0.032), and family history of cervical cancer (p=0.00; PR=8.76; 95% CI [1.98-38.5]) were significantly associated with the adequate level of cervical cancer practice of the women surveyed. Conclusion: The level of knowledge, attitude and practice related to cervical cancer prevention was low in Malanville. Awareness-raising actions on cervical cancer prevention must be implemented, taking into account the factors associated with an adequate level of practice.
