Cervical Cancer Elimination Reports: Australia’s progress towards the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem

In this second data audit of Australia’s progress towards the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem, we have brought together the most recent data available across 12 indicators to paint a snapshot of our current status, including reporting for the first time on precancer treatment. We have come far in cervical cancer prevention and control in Australia, but there remains work to do, both in terms of public health action and necessary improvements in the way we gather and synthesise data to inform these actions.

We are optimistic that Australia can address the challenges identified in this report and hope that this report can help inform a national strategy to ensure Australia’s progress towards the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem is on-track for all women.
