Australia to boost Pap smear take-up:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Australia has launched its most extensive campaign ever to encourage women to have regular Pap smears in an effort to reduce the death rate from cervical cancer. The national campaign, featuring television and magazine advertisements, aims to ensure that by 1999 80% of women aged over 18 will have a Pap smear every two years. More than 1,000 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed annually in Australia and around 300 women die from the disease each year.
