Test such as the pap smear require access to skilled health care and labs for testing samples and HPV (the virus responsible for most cervical cancers) testing kits remain expensive, yet VIA offers a low cost alternative which can be performed with minimal resources.

VIA stands for Visual Inspection of the cervix with Acetic acid.
