Cervical cancer is a disease feared by women this decade. This is because cervical cancer is the most common cause of death in women. The incidence of cervical cancer in Southeast Asia reached 175,229 cases, and 94,294 among sufferers died. WHO placed Indonesia as the country with the highest number of cervical cancer sufferers in the world and this type of cancer was the number one cause of death in women in Indonesia. Every day around 20 Indonesian women die of cervical cancer. Another thing that is the cause is the lack of public knowledge about the symptoms of cancer and initial symptoms that are sometimes also difficult to detect so that the majority of sufferers come for treatment in an advanced stage. Current incidence of cervical cancer throughout the world can be suppressed through effective screening efforts through pap smears or IVA tests. Unfortunately,
this activity has not been comprehensive in every country, especially in Southeast Asia (developing countries) like Indonesia. The government set a target for coverage of cervical cancer screening by 80%, but in 2013 it only reached 1.75%. The causes are low public knowledge and lack of information about cervical cancer. Women at risk are largely unaware of the need to undergo an early detection of cervical cancer. Therefore, we consider it important to carry out training activities to form health cadres as well as the importance of the cadre's readiness to become a health educator about Cervi Health Insurance Detection. The purpose of this study was to determine the readiness of cadres as health educators after training on early detection of cervical cancer and to analyze differences in cadre readiness before and after training on the readiness of cadres as health educators about early detection of cervical cancer. Research results conducted from the results of the pre- and post-questionnaires collected, the results showed that 61.5% of cadres were ready to become health educators about early detection of cervical cancer, and there were mean differences in the cadre readiness score before and after it was done. Intervention, with P value =0.000 (P= <0.05). So that it can be concluded that cadres who have been trained are better prepared than cadres who have not been trained and there is an effect of training on cadre readiness to become an early detection advisor about cervical cancer. Based on the results of this study, it is expected that cadres have readiness as an early detection center for cervical cancer so that people get more knowledge and information about early detection of cervical cancer so that the morbidity and mortality rates from cervical cancer can be reduced.
