Inequalities in cervical cancer survival in New Zealand

The aims of this project are:

  1. We have previously observed differences in cervical cancer survival in New Zealand according to ethnicity; are there similar differences by socioeconomic status or urban/rural status?
  2. If ethnic, socioeconomic and/or urban/rural differences are present, are these explained by differences in stage at presentation?
  3. What other factors (e.g. comorbidities, screening history, distance from clinic) may explain the observed demographic differences in survival?
