AccessMatters administers the HealthyWoman Program in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Program provides free breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic services, and referrals to treatment when needed.

Cervical cancer screening is available to patients age 21 years and older, and breast cancer screening is available to patients age 40 years and older or to patients between the age of 21 and 39 years of age who are at high risk for developing breast cancer. Diagnostic care for breast and cervical cancer is available to patients age 18 years and older.
