Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has expressed its support for the national cervical screening programme, which it recently revised to keep it consistent with international best practice. The council has recommended that the screening interval in Australia also be reviewed at the earliest opportunity. Screening to prevent cancer: guidelines for the management of asymptomatic women with screen-detected abnormalities, was developed to help achieve the best outcomes in the management of abnormal Pap test results; it will also raise women's awareness of the usefulness of Pap smears in preventing death from cervical cancer.
