Increasing Uptake of Evidence-Based Screening Services Through CHW-led Multi-modality Intervention: South Florida Center for Reducing Health Disparities

The purpose of this research study is to determine the best way to increase screening for
cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, HIV, and Hepatitis C among underscreened Hispanic,
Haitian and African-American individuals in Hialeah, South Dade, and Little Haiti. The
investigator will compare home testing led by a community health worker (CHW) versus clinic
testing guided by a CHW. Community Health Workers are people who have undergone several weeks
of community outreach and health education training. During the study period the participant
will continue to receive all of their regular medical care from their regular health care
providers. If the participant does not have a health care provider, the Community Health
Workers would be able to help in referring the participant for care at a local health care
clinic located in their community.
