Background and Objective: Carcinoma cervix (CC) is a preventable disease, but still remains as the most common cancer among women in India. This study examines the knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) concerning CC and screening among female health care providers (HCPs) of Chennai Corporation in 2013. Materials and Methods: In a descriptive cross-sectional study, 107 female HCPs working in Chennai Corporation were interviewed using a standardized questionnaire. Results: About 100% of HCPs were aware of CC. 85% of the HCPs were aware of the major risk factors and symptoms of cancer cervix. About 95.3% of HCPs were aware of the cervical cancer screening either Pap smear or visual inspection using acetic acid or Lugol's iodine. Only 57.9% felt that they were at risk of cervical cancer. About 80.4% felt that they should undergo cervical cancer screening for themselves. Only 18.4% of the female HCPs have ever undergone cervical cancer screening. Conclusion: There was a KAP - gap among HCPs. Misconceptions regarding screening need to be urgently addressed among HCPs.
