This report card provides a brief, at-a-glance view of all National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP), BreastScreen Australia and National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) indicators by Primary Health Network (PHN) and Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) using the latest available data.

Links are included for indicators that have dynamic data display information available.

National Bowel Cancer Screening Program

The NBCSP aims to reduce the morbidity and mortality from bowel cancer by actively recruiting and screening the target population for early detection.

The data presented here are reported against the new NBCSP indicators. The NBCSP indicators measure program performance for people invited to participate in screening and are consistent with the five Australian Population Based Screening Framework steps. For further details on the development process and technical specifications of the NBCSP indicators, see National Bowel Cancer Screening Program documentation.
