Abstract

Background: Cervical cancer (CC) is a disease included in the AUGE system for its high impact on the population. Within this system, every user has the right to be informed about its functioning to encourage timely care, however, at present the users' level of knowledge is unknown. Objective: To identify the degree of knowledge and sources of information on GES among women seeking care in the CC-AUGE program. Method: Cross-sectional study with a sample of 364 women, 237 with pre-invasive lesions and 127 with CC. Results: 18.7% of women reported knowledge of the system, 24.5% reported partial knowledge and 56.7% mentioned that they do not know about it. 62% of the women who knew the GES understood it as a system that gives financial protection and 45% understood that it covers serious or catastrophic illness. Regardingsources of information about GES, 71% reported that received information by health staff or health services, 29% by mass media, 8% by neighbors and 8% from other sources. Conclusions: The degree of knowledge about the GES system is low among these women and it is associated mainly with financial protection and coverage of diseases. It is relevant to provide greater information that facilitates the efficient function of the system, quality of care, and to allow women to use the right given to them by the Chilean law.
