Our researchers have investigated the potential for cervical cancer to be eliminated as a public health problem globally.
Research shows Australia is on track to become the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem.
This world-first trial of cervical screening in an HPV-vaccinated population, will further increase our knowledge of Australia’s new cervical cancer screening program.
