ACP supports this measure because it aligns with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology guideline. The measures is also indirectly supported by United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guideline on cervical cancer screening, which states that women who are immunocompromised should not be held to the same screening standards as the general population.
