Ontario Cervical Screening Program Report

The Ontario Cervical Screening Program (OCSP) is an organized, population-based screening program that aims to reduce the risk of developing or dying from cervical cancer by increasing the percentage of women who get screened regularly and who have timely and appropriate follow-up of abnormal results.

The Ontario Cervical Screening Program 2012 Report builds on the 2003 to 2008 report. Nine new indicators, including histology and colposcopy data, are reported for the first time. This additional data provides a more complete picture of Ontario’s performance in cervical cancer screening, highlighting the program's strengths and areas of focus for future improvement.

Socio-demographic factors have been calculated for most indicators in the report, including information about the potential effects on program performance of age, income, rural versus urban residence, immigrant status and community size. Data on regional variation analyzed by Local Health Integration Networks is in Appendix F.
