A decade of Ngarrindjeri Mimini Cervix screening

Yvonne J. Thomson

The Ngarrindjeri Lands in rural South Australia cover the area of 18 clans of the Ngarrindjeri people. There is a strong tradition of privacy around women’s business and a high burden of serious illness in this population so the rate of smear testing in the local Aboriginal women was very low. This is a description of the 10 years of providing culturally appropriate sexual health services to Aboriginal women from disadvantaged backgrounds.
