Abstract

This report is the latest in the Cervical screening in Australia series, published annually to provide monitoring of national participation and performance for the National cervical screening program (NCSP). The report provides data for the 2010-2011 period of participation in the NCSP, as well as the latest available cervical cancer incidence and mortality data. The target group for the program is women aged 20-69.

The number of new cases of cervical cancer per 100,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women was more than twice that of non-Indigenous women, and the rate of deaths per 100,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women was five times the non-Indigenous rate.

Participation by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women was not reported due to Indigenous status information not being collected on pathology forms. Evidence does suggest, however, that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population group is under-screened.
