In Australia, there are national population-based screening programs for breast cancer, cervical cancer and bowel cancer. See AIHW monitoring reports for details on these programs.
Indigenous Australians participate in BreastScreen Australia and the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) at a lower rate than non-Indigenous Australians. Information is not available on Indigenous participation in the National Cervical Screening Program, although there is evidence that Indigenous Australians also participate in cervical screening at a lower rate.
