Cervical screening in Australia 2011–2012 presents the latest national statistics monitoring the National Cervical Screening Program, which aims to reduce incidence, morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer.
In 2012, for every 1,000 women screened, 8 women had a high-grade abnormality detected by histology
Incidence and mortality have remained at around 9 new cases and 2 deaths per 100,000 women since 2002
Incidence and mortality were higher in Indigenous women than in non-Indigenous women
There were 682 new cases diagnosed in 2010, and 152 women died from cervical cancer in 2011
