Abstract
Considering the social high incidence and mortality rate of cervix cancer, the government provides a free medical service of Pap smear test based on the Cancer Control Act regulated in 2003. This paper attempts to understand the impact of policy implementation for Pap smear test and employs the diffusion model, learning model and integrating model respectively to examine the diffusion of Pap smear test promotion. The results show that all the three models are statistically fitted, i.e. diffusion effects, learning effects, and interaction effects exists and may explain the trend of Pap smear test. The policy of the Cancer Control Act is also found to significantly affect the adoption of Pap smear test.
