Cervical screening in Australia 2010-2011 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 have both halved since the NCSP was introduced in 1991
Incidence and mortality were higher in Indigenous women than in non-Indigenous women
There were 631 new cases diagnosed in 2009, and 152 women died from cervical cancer in 2010
Of the women sent a 27-month reminder letter by a cervical cytology register in 2010, 32% rescreened within 3 months
