Cervical screening in Australia 2009-2010 presents the latest national statistics monitoring the National Cervical Screening Program, which aims to reduce incidence, morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer.
Incidence and mortality were higher in Indigenous women than in non-Indigenous women
Incidence and mortality have both halved since the NCSP was introduced in 1991
In 2009–2010, more than 3.6 million women participated in the NCSP. This was 57% of women in the target population
