Health risk for women who don't vote

2nd September 2011

A paper in the Journal of Medical Screening has shown that women who said that they rarely or never voted in elections were more likely to be overdue for cervical screening.

In the first study of its kind to test a link between low cervical screening uptake and broader social disillusionment, the research found that practical obstacles such as “not getting round to it” and difficulty in arranging a convenient appointment, were more predictive of uptake than the emotional barriers that were previously thought to be a key factor.
