This is the eighth national report monitoring the performance of the National Cervical Screening Program using ten indicators which measure program activity, performance and outcome. These indicators help measure changes in disease patterns and examine the contribution of cervical screening to preventing or reducing deaths from cancer of the cervix. It differs from previous reports that were exclusively published on the internet in that it is limited to presenting data from the Programs in table format and does not include the usual descriptive text and graphs.
