Description:Help on this termProportion of female regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 20 to 69 years, who have not had a hysterectomy and who have had a cervical screening within the previous 2 years, 3 years and 5 years.
Rationale:Help on this termCancer mortality rates are higher for Indigenous Australians than for other Australians. National organised programs for cervical screening in Australia have been followed by reductions in mortality rates for these cancers. A pap smear every two years can prevent the most common form of cervical cancer and is the best protection against cervical cancer.
