Cervical cancer screening coverage
The Population Health Survey 2014/15 is a territory-wide household survey which aimed to strengthen the Government’s information base on population health, thereby support evidence-based decision in health policy making, resource allocation and provision of health services and public health programmes.
The results showed that the cervical cancer screening coverage* for ever screened and screened within the three years preceding the survey among Hong Kong women aged 25 to 64 were 59% and 47% respectively.
* Cervical cancer screening is for women who have no symptoms of cervical cancer. Therefore the calculation of coverage does not include women with relevant symptoms.
