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
In 2010, for every 1,000 women screened, 9 women had a high-grade abnormality detected by histology
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
