Cervical screening in Australia 2009-2010 (AIHW)

Cervical screening in Australia 2009-2010 presents the latest national statistics monitoring the National Cervical Screening Program, which aims to reduce incidence, morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer. About 57% of women in the target age group of 20-69 took part in the program, with more than 3.6 million women screened in 2009 and 2010. Cervical cancer incidence in this age group remains at a historical low of 9 new cases per 100,000 women, and deaths are also low, historically and by international standards, at 2 deaths per 100,000 women.
