In the United States, racial/ethnic disparities in cervical cancer preventive practices exist. Hispanics in the U.S. are the largest and most rapidly growing demographic group, with a population increase four times higher than the general population. Cervical cancer screening rates among the Hispanic women population remain low. Lack of access to the Papanicolaou test (Pap smear test) and follow-up treatment are key factors that help explain the high rates of cervical cancer among Hispanic women compared to those of other races or ethnicities. Current research shows that cervical cancer screening practices are influenced by multiple factors such as cultural beliefs, religiosity, and perceived barriers to cervical cancer screening. The purpose of this cross-sectional study is to examine the association between biculturalism, knowledge of cervical cancer screening, religiosity (perceived religiosity to health outcomes and church cohesion) and perceived barriers to cervical cancer screening among churchgoing Hispanic women who are participants in the Fe en Acción /Faith in Action study in San Diego, CA (n=312). The Health Belief Model was used as the theoretical framework to identify modifying factors that influence cervical cancer screening practices. Surveys were administered and information was gathered about their Hispanic women's biculturalism, knowledge about cervical cancer prevention and religiosity (perceived religious influence on health outcomes and church cohesion) and perceived barriers to cervical cancer screening. Linear regression models were used to determine whether there were significant differences among variables. Results from the linear regressions indicated a significant association between knowledge of cervical cancer prevention and the number of perceived barriers to cervical cancer screening. Additionally, one dimension of religiosity "illness as punishment for sin" was significantly associated with the number of perceived barriers to cervical cancer screening.
