Wake County Health & Human Services Health Promotion Section has several programs that address the needs of Wake County women. 

Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (NC BCCCP)

The North Carolina Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (NC BCCCP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings and follow-up to eligible women in North Carolina.  

Each year, NC BCCCP strives to provide services to more than 12,000 women. 

NC BCCCP services are offered at most local health departments as well as some community health centers, hospitals and private physicians’ offices across the state. Approximately 102 local health agencies work in cooperation with physicians, hospitals and other health care facilities to provide services to eligible North Carolina women. 

Who is eligible for NC BCCCP? 

NC BCCCP provides services to North Carolina women who are: 

  • Uninsured or underinsured; 
  • Without Medicare Part B or Medicaid; 
  • Between ages 40–64 for breast screening services and 18–64 for cervical screening services; and 
  • Have a household income at or below 250% of the federal poverty level. 

BCCCP eligible women may also be eligible for NC WISEWOMAN. WISEWOMAN provides cardiovascular disease screening and helps women to improve their diet, physical activity and other life habits to prevent, delay or control cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.
