For any program success, strong management and support for program strategies at all levels of the health care system are essential. Crucial to gaining this support is to clearly demonstrate the need and demand for a cervical cancer control program. Demonstration should include analyses of the estimated costs and impact of various program approaches. Health care providers and clients should be involved in program design to ensure that their perspectives are considered and their needs are met. Potential bottlenecks to program functioning (for example, logistical barriers) should be identified and addressed at the start. Finally, effective programs rely on health care providers trained to be sensitive to client concerns and needs.
