Currently, cervical screening is the only screening programme that is not fully funded by the New Zealand Government.
In July 2023, the pathway will shift to HPV primary screening, providing patients more choice and improving participation in cervical screening. To ensure costs for screening and follow-up tests are not barriers, we are calling for a fully funded, equitable screening programme. This includes FREE screening and follow-up, diagnosis, and treatment.
