Our Impact

Leading the world in controlling and eliminating cervical cancer through screening and vaccination


How are we making a difference?

ACPCC has a proven track record in delivering population health outcomes that make a difference. In particular, we have been at the forefront of preventing and controlling cervical cancer through screening programs and HPV vaccines.

Over the years, ACPCC has been instrumental in advising and informing public health policy around cervical screening, HPV screening and HPV vaccination. 

Key examples of our impact:

  • The creation of Australia’s first Pap test registry
  • Working for the Australian Department of Health to create and run the country’s first register for the HPV vaccination program
  • Playing a key role in the provision of evidence and support in the 2017 changes to the National Cervical Screening Program, transitioning from 2-yearly Pap tests to 5-yearly HPV tests
  • Becoming Australia’s first accredited lab for processing HPV self-collection tests

Due to the efforts and achievements of the Australian Centre for the Prevention of Cervical Cancer, Australia is well on track to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem by 2035, becoming the first country in the world to do so.

ACPCC often features in the news. Here is a collection of the latest news stories either featuring ACPCC or of interest to our organisation.
