      tests in SPSS software package for Windows 15.0. RESULTS: A total of 970 family
      health personnel participated in the research. The age range was 20-45 years
      (82.4%). Mean age was 37.9+/-7.4. Response rate was 87.3%. Of the participants,
      88.4% performed breast self-examination. Rate of performing mammography at least 
      once was 24.1%. Rate of performing Pap-smear examination at least once was 61.0%.
