Outcome Measure:

Evaluation of the ability of the social media intervention "End Stigma End Fear, End Cervical Cancer" to counter stigma of cervical cancer among disadvantaged women who acknowledge needing a Pap test at pre-intervention baseline

Outcome Description:

To evaluate the ability of the social media intervention "End Stigma End Fear, End Cervical Cancer" to counter stigma of cervical cancer, by determining whether, among disadvantaged women who acknowledge needing a Pap test at pre-intervention baseline, degree of exposure to the intervention is associated with the following endpoints at 3 months after the intervention is implemented: post-intervention change in stigma score relative to pre-intervention, and Pap testing (scored as 0=made no attempt, 1=made some attempt but did not get tested, 2=obtained Pap test).

Outcome Time Frame:

3 months after the intervention is implemented
