The lack of knowledge about cervical cancer in woman of childbearing age is the cause of high mortality rate problem. The awareness of performing inspection with acetic acid is low. The aim of the study is to find the EMO-DEMO educational influence on the enhancement of knowledge, attitudes and participation of women of childbearing age in screening cervical cancer using the method of Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA). We undertook this research using quasi experimental research with nonequivalent control group design. The sample selection was made probability sampling simple random sampling for 60 respondents per group, the data collected using the questionnaire for the knowledge and attitude data and the interview sheets for the participation data. The results show there is a meaningful difference between pretest and posttest on knowledge, attitude and participation in cervical cancer screening using VIA method with p = 0.000. In conclusion, there is increase in knowledge, attitudes and participation in screening cervical cancer using VIA.
