Cervical Screening Program

The New National Cervical Screening Program has been implemented since December 2017.

The two yearly Pap test for people aged 18 to 69 will change to a five yearly human papillomavirus (HPV) test for people aged 25 to 74.

People will be due for the first Cervical Screening Test two years after their last Pap test.

The changes include:

  • the Pap test will be replaced with the more accurate Cervical Screening Test
  • the time between tests will change from two to five years
  • the age at which screening starts will increase from 18 years to 25 years
  • people aged 70 to 74 years will be invited to have an exit test.


More information on the National Cervical Screening Program is available on cancerscreening.gov.au

The information in the above were collected from the internet,
