BreastScreen Australia monitoring report 2011-2012 presents the latest national statistics on this national screening program, which aims to reduce illness and death resulting from breast cancer through organised screening to detect cases of unsuspected breast cancer in women, thus enabling early intervention.

Around 55% of women in the target age group of 50-69 took part in the program, with more than 1.7 million women screening in 2011-2012. Breast cancer mortality is at an historic low, at 44 deaths per 100,000 women.
