Have your say on Cancer Council’s National Prevention Policy. Complete our short survey to inform our refresh project.


This chapter of the National Cancer Prevention Policy combines information about human papillomavirus immunisation and cervical screening, which were two separate chapters in previous editions of the NCPP.

The chapter was updated in August 2018 following the implementation of the renewed National Cervical Screening Program. It has been reviewed internally by the Screening and Immunisation Committee of Cancer Council Australia and externally by Dr Lisa Whop (Research Fellow, Menzies School of Health Research) and Dr Dorothy Machalek (Epidemiologist, Women’s Centre for Infectious Diseases). It has been approved by Cancer Council’s principal Public Health Committee in October 2018.
