Research Groups

Early Detection and Prevention - Screening Group

Objectives:

The core function of the Screening Group is to provide evidence to guide the development of public health policies in implementing screening in a range of health-care settings, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. To achieve this objective, the Screening Group conducts research projects worldwide in collaboration with national institutions and investigators and provides consultancies for assessing capacities and opportunities in the context of national cancer control programmes. The Screening Group′s mandates also include the generation of trained human resources to support screening programmes, and the evaluation of ongoing programmes for improved quality of services.
