The main purpose of the ATICA Study is to evaluate the efficiency of an ICT based intervention – sending text messages (SMS) through cellphone telephony to women and community health workers- in order to increase Pap triage access for women who tested positive after taking an HPV self-collection test. 

We hope that the results obtained from the ATICA Study provide key evidence to improve the effectiveness of self-collection strategies in screening programs not only in Argentina but in other countries of the region as well. In addition, we hope that the evidence regarding the contribution of ICT in the prevention of cervical cancer can be adapted to other pathologies and lead to better access to health services.
