Cer­vi­cal can­cer tar­geted for elim­i­na­tion in 20 years

The Guardian Weekly - - Global report -

Aus­tralia may be­come the first coun­try to wipe out cer­vi­cal can­cer, thanks to pro­grammes that could see the dis­ease ef­fec­tively elim­i­nated within 20 years.

Re­search in The Lancet Pub­lic Health fore­casts the dis­ease will soon be a rar­ity in Aus­tralia, with fewer than six new cases per 100,000 women by 2022, and fewer than four new cases per 100,000 women by 2035.
