Summary For the first time in Uruguay a sample of 96.858 women, users of the Cervical Cancer Prevention Program was analized in order to obtain an epidemiologic characterization. Prevalence of results associated with cervical cancer was 1,20% in the studied population. Epidemiologic factors of cervical cancer associated with Papanicolaou test results were Sexually Transmitted Diseases, HPV (Human papillomavirus) and HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), smoking and lack of prevention control test. Prevention should be wider in women with who do not have the resources to meet their basic needs
