BreastScreen Australia

BreastScreen Australia is the national breast cancer screening program established in 1991. It aims to reduce illness and death from breast cancer through an organised approach to the early detection of breast cancer, using screening mammography to detect unsuspected breast cancer in women. Early detection provides an opportunity for early treatment, which can reduce illness and death. Women aged 40 and over are eligible for free mammograms every 2 years, and women aged 50–74 are actively targeted to participate in the program.

Latest screening participation data are currently only available in the data tables with visualisations to be added in future releases of this report.
