Preventing Cervical Cancer: Integrating Screening and Vaccination (March 2009)

Mar 2009 - News

The Victorian Cytology Service Inc (VCS), in association with the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance of Vaccine Preventable Diseases (NCIRS), was proud to be the organiser of Preventing Cervical Cancer 2009: Integrating Screening and Vaccination (PCC2009).

PCC2009 brought together international and Australian experts in cervical screening, vaccination and cancer epidemiology to debate and explore current and future directions in the prevention of cervical cancer. It provided a forum for these experts to share their vision and influence policy development in the prevention of cervical cancer.

Australia’s cervical screening program is amongst the most successful in the world. Now, coupled with our world-leading commitment to population-based vaccination for high-risk HPV, Australia is poised to develop highly effective new models for cervical cancer prevention that could eventually lead to the almost total eradication of this disease.
