    WA Cervical Cancer Prevention Program
The Cervical Cytology Registry (CCR) is part of the
Department of Health’s WA Cervical Cancer Prevention
Program (WACCPP). It compiles and maintains a
confidential database of all Western Australian women’s
cervical test results. These cervical test results include:
Pap smears, cervical biopsies and Human Papilloma Virus
(HPV) DNA results. It acts as a “safety net” providing
                                                                                     Check Card
a reminder to women and medical practitioners when
Pap smears and follow-up cervical investigations are
over due.
•   Every woman over 18 years of age who has ever had
    sexual contact should have regular Pap smears every
    two years.
•   Regular Pap smears every two years can prevent up
    to 90% of the most common type of cervical cancer.
