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.
Of the women sent a 27-month reminder letter by a cervical cytology register in 2009, 32% rescreened within 3 months
There were 637 new cases of cervical cancer diagnosed in 2008, and 131 women died from cervical cancer in 2007
Only 14% of women with a negative Pap test in 2009 rescreened earlier than recommended
In 2010, for every 1,000 women screened, 9 women had a high-grade abnormality detected by histology
