This Friday, green is the color. It is the color of cervical cancer screening. The territorial professional health community (CPTS), which brings together health professionals from Agenais, has initiated an original action thanks to its new tool: the Médicobus. For three days, the team crisscrossed the priority neighborhoods of the city of Agen, in order to reach people far from these preventive care pathways.

The advantage of this fully equipped bus is that it allows the mobilized midwife, Élodie Desjours, to do smear tests in the same conditions as a doctor’s office. “The approach was rather well appreciated,” she emphasizes. In total, around thirty women over three days came, spontaneously or referred by social centers. “Cervical screening concerns all women, even those who have no sexuality, even those who are menopausal, even those in gender transition,” the professionals remind us.

This was the first action of the Médicobus. “It will come into operation in the countryside, for accompanied teleconsultation, in November,” specifies Alexia Labonne, coordinator of the CPTS. However, another prevention action is already planned, around dermatological cancers.
