The Ontario Health Insurance Program/ Ministry of Health and Long Term Care: Stop the fees for annual pap tests!

Abnormal pap test results can often flag abnormalities through lesions caused by infections with the human papillomaviruses (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer. Many other infections, which are flagged by the pap test can lead to sterility and other reproductive organ issues if left untreated.

It is not fair to lower income women to have to choose between spending $20 on a pap test and perhaps feeding their children. What annual men's tests were reviewed as cost cutting measures?
