Cervical cancer screening is a worldwide problem especially in the developing world of which Tanzania belongs. It is diagnosed late in the third world because there are no diagnostic facilities and resource people. It occurs in the age groups between 40 and above and therefore affects the productive age of the community. It is well known that women generally are the backbone of every community and specifically in the developing countries.

The objective of this research is to analyze and quantify the burden of cervical cancer disease in the community. It will research the interpersonal and socioeconomic issues associated with cervical cancer disease in the family.
