The Tasmania Cervical Cytology Register commenced in 1994. The register provides records of women’s screening history and a back-up reminder service to women overdue for screening. The register is supported by public and professional education activities, encouraging women in the target age group of 20-69 years to ask their doctors for regular two-yearly Pap smears.

In 2001-02, some 49,106 women were screened. In the 24 months to 31 December 2002 the participation rate among women in the target group was 65%, the same as the participation rate for the 24 months to 31 December 2001.
