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.
Only 14% of women with a negative Pap test in 2009 rescreened earlier than recommended
Incidence and mortality were higher in Indigenous women than in non-Indigenous women
In 2010, for every 1,000 women screened, 9 women had a high-grade abnormality detected by histology
Incidence and mortality have both halved since the NCSP was introduced in 1991
