Resumo: ABSTRACT: Problem Statement: There are approximately 60000 women with cervical cancer in Europe and of these, 30000 die annually. Through screening programmes we can prevent many cases of illness and death1. Research Questions: What are the health beliefs about cervical cancer in university students? Purpose of the Study: To identify health beliefs about cervical cancer in university students. Research Methods: This is a quantitative, analytical, comparative and correlational study, with a sample of 345 university students. The data collection instrument is a questionnaire that assesses the health beliefs about cervical cancer in university students and the Health Belief Scale2. Findings: The participants have a low belief in vulnerability, an average belief in severity relative to cervical cancer, a high belief in benefits and indifference in the belief of barriers to screening. Conclusions: Health professionals are fundamental in health education so that people will adopt healthy attitudes to health, to encourage adherence to screening for cervical cancer and to demystify wrong ideas.
