BreastScreen Australia aims to reduce illness and death resulting from breast cancer through organised screening of women. This report is the latest in an annual series that presents national statistics monitoring the program against performance indicators. More than 1.3 million women in the target age group of 50-69 were screened in 2009-2010, a participation rate of 55%. Breast cancer mortality is at a historic low, at 43 deaths per 100,000 women.
