Cervical screening in Australia 2014–2015 presents the latest national statistics monitoring the National Cervical Screening Program, which aims to reduce incidence, morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer. Just over half (56%) of women in the target age group of 20–69 took part in the program, with more than 3.8 million women screening in 2014 and 2015. Cervical cancer incidence for women of all ages remains at an historical low of 7 new cases per 100,000 women, and deaths are also low, historically and by international standards, at 2 deaths per 100,000 women.
In 2015, for every 1,000 women screened, 8 women had a high-grade abnormality detected by histology
In 2013, 692 women aged 20–69 were diagnosed with cervical cancer
In 2014, of the women sent a 27-month reminder letter by a cervical screening register, 32% rescreened within 3 months
11% of women with a negative screen in 2014 rescreened earlier than the recommended 2 years, continuing a downward trend
