Cervical cancer is a women's health problem in Indonesia with a high mortality rate. Delay in diagnosis at an advanced stage, weak condition, social status, low economy, limited resources, limited facilities and infrastructure, type of histopathology and degree of education participate in determining the prognosis of the patient. An effective screening that can be used is the IVA Test (Visual Acetate Inspection) which is a direct examination without using a magnification tool (the naked eye) after swabbing the cervix with 3-5% acetic acid. This community service was carried out to 44 women of childbearing age (WUS) with flour albous who did the IVA Test Puskesmas Medan Sunggal.
