An educational intervention was carried out in 65 adolescents from Miranda in the Bolivian Republic of Venezuela from February to July, 2007, aimed at modifying their knowledge related to the prevention of cervical cancer. At the beginning a very high percentage of inadequate instruction on the topic was found, which was adequately changed in 96, 9% of the participants, so that the intervention was effective.

Keywords : adolescence; cervical cancer; educational intervention; Venezuela.
