It has been shown that women who are culturally and linguistically diverse are less likely to participate in regular cervical screening.
But it's very important that all women, no matter what language they speak or how long they have been in Australia, have Cervical Screening Tests every five years between the ages of 25 and 74.
Information about Cervical Screening Tests and preventing cervical cancer is available in languages other than English.
You can ask your doctor or health professional about cervical screening, or call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 13 14 50 to speak to a Cancer Council nurse in your preferred language.
Some women who choose not to have a doctor or nurse collect the Cervical Screening Test, may be eligible to take the sample themselves. This is called a self-collected Cervical Screening Test. Speak to your doctor or health professional to find out if you are eligible.
