Our aim

  • reduce the number of cases of cervical cancer and the impact on the community of illness and death from cervical cancer
  • increase the number of women who are regularly screened, as well as promoting high-quality cervical screening and follow-up services
  • provide an efficient and coordinated cervical cancer screening program which is consistent with the aims of the National Cervical Screening Program.

One of the main tasks of the SA Cervix Screening Program (SACSP) is to encourage women to have a Cervical Screening Test every five years in line with the updated national policy. We target the general population of women, with particular emphasis on women who are over 50 years, Aboriginal women, women who live in an area where very few women get screened and women from non-English speaking backgrounds.

In recognition that Aboriginal women often have poorer health than non Aboriginal women, SACSP has a specific team working with Aboriginal communities across SA to promote Well Women's Screening Checks.

What we do

  • health promotion activities which encourage women’s participation in screening
  • informing service providers of policy and guidelines
  • support the national registry to ensure women return for regular Cervical Screening Tests and/or follow-up tests
  • work to address the needs of women from culturally diverse backgrounds.

We inform the National Cancer Screening Register, which is a central database that contains a woman’s history of Cervical Screening Tests and other cancer related test results in Australia.

National Cancer Screening Registry

The National Cancer Screening Registry ensures consistent data collection across Australia for all cancer screening.
