Cancer is the third leading cause of death In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is situated in the Arabian Gulf. A national programme for cervical cancer screening is likely to be implemented in the future. In this study, we assessed the knowledge, attitude, and practice of UAE female primary care physicians of cervical screening through a self-administered questionnaire. Of the 98 physicians who participated in the study only 40% reported ever having performed a Pap smear. In the study, we identified various training needs, and a training programme on cervical screening currently is being developed based on the results of this study.
