Abstract Introduction: in underdeveloped countries, screening programs supported by “cytology” such as the “Timely Detection of Cervical Cancer” have not had the expected success, because multiple resources are requested to execute each of the steps of the program, and the necessary staff and infrastructure are not always in place. Objective: to determine the frequency of compliance with the program for the Timely Detection of Cervical Cancer. Methodology: a bibliographic review was carried out, and investigations were included that provided quantitative information on the Program for the Timely Detection of Cervical Cancer of the health units of the Ministry of Public Health. The information was collected from original articles from indexed journals, which were found in scientific databases such as Scopus, Scielo and academic Google 116 articles were found, but only 17 were found to be eligible and valid for the study. Results: non-compliance with the DOCcu program coverage at the national level was 41.5% for the Papanicolaou test, and immunizations against HPV was 15.91% for 9-year-old girls, and in older women It was 60%, this until 2018, as of those dates there are no records, nor of the other tests. The age group that most participated in DOCcu are women from 45 to 49 years old, with higher education. Conclusions: the "Program for the Timely Detection of cancer", in relation to the Paptest and HPV vaccination in Ecuador is still deficient.
