Cervical screening in Australia 2011-2012 presents the latest national statistics monitoring the National Cervical Screening Program, which aims to reduce incidence, morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer.

Around 58% of women in the target age group of 20-69 took part in the program, with more than 3.7 million women screening in 2011 and 2012.

Cervical cancer incidence for women of all ages remains at a historical low of 7 new cases per 100,000 women, and deaths are also low, historically and by international standards, at 2 deaths per 100,000 women.
