  Not BC, but all good news like this is worth noting!

Research from the Cancer Council NSW has found that cervical cancer could officially be considered a rare disease in Australia within the next two years and, in another world first, rendered so uncommon by 2028 that it would no longer be considered a public health problem.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that, while global deaths from cervical cancer still exceed 310,000 a year, the disease is becoming increasingly uncommon in Australia thanks to the introduction of the national human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program in 2007, as well as key changes to the country’s pap smear program in 1991

    I heard that, too .As I was driving with my 12 & 13 year old girls in the car.  Hopefully, never a real concern for them
