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

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. We established the first Pap Test Registry in Australia and established and operated the first HPV vaccination program register on behalf of the Australian Department of Health. We were a driving force in providing evidence to support the transition from 2-yearly Pap tests to 5-yearly HPV tests under the renewed National Cervical Screening Program. We also became the first laboratory in Australia to be accredited 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.

PCC2022 was held on 16-18 November 2022 at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne. Recordings and information about the event are here, along with details of the next meeting. 

This Strategy will inform the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care’s future activities to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem in Australia by 2035.
