Objective of the publication is to report the results of a pilot study for a service for cervical cancer screening and diagnosis in north-western Tanzania. The authors conclude that the diagnostic procedure had an acceptable level of quality. Factors associated with the detected prevalence of disease will allow for a more targeted promotion of the service. Cervical screening should be coordinated with sexually transmitted disease and HIV infection control activities.
