HPV self-sampling study for women

HPV self-sampling study for women who have not participated in cervical cancer screening programme

HPV self-sampling study is finished.

The National Institute for Health Development (TAI) together with the Estonian Health Insurance Fund is organizing a HPV self-sampling study to assess the risk of cervical cancer, by offering the opportunity to perform a self-sampling test for women who have not participated in organised cervical cancer screening programme in Estonia.

As part of the study, we will be offering you the opportunity to perform a self-sampling test for high-risk HPV free of charge. You can participate in the study also in case you do not currently have health insurance.

Your participation in the study will provide you with important information about your health and will help to prevent cervical cancer. You will be notified personally if your test is positive and any additional examinations will be free of charge for you.

Your participation in the study will help to improve the cervical cancer screening programme. As a result of the study we can assess whether it is possible to use a self-sampling test in Estonia as part of a routine screening in the future, offering women the opportunity to perform the test at home instead of going to a health care institution.

A total of 12,000 randomly selected women across Estonia have been invited to participate in the study.

To participate in the study and order a HPV self-sampling kit we ask you to log in to the ordering environment using your ID card, Mobile ID or SmartID; enter your e-mail address, telephone number; choose your preferred language of study materials and select a suitable SmartPost parcel terminal. You will receive a confirmation e-mail after placing your order.

You can also order the sampler and questionnaire via telephone or e-mail, see the additional information below.
