The project of personalised invitations of citizens to cancer screening programmes was launched in the Czech Republic in January 2014. Women are invited to participate in breast cancer screening and cervical cancer screening; men and women are invited to participate in colorectal cancer screening. The project aims to enhance the current cancer prevention programmes, and to increase their participation rates; therefore, personalised invitations are sent to citizens who do not participate in cancer screening programmes in the long term, and thus are at a higher risk of developing cancer.

Screening for HPV infection alone more accurate than Pap Test in the detection of cervical cancer, especially in younger women
8.1.2015 Elsevier Press Release | More information...

Screening for human papillomavirus (HPV) infection alone gives more accurate results than Pap (smear) testing for cervical cancer, say the authors of two papers to published today in the journal Gynecologic Oncology. HPV infection causes almost all cervical cancer, and it is estimated that more than half of sexually active people are infected with HPV at some point in their lives. Now new research has shown that in many cases, an HPV test alone can be used for cervical cancer screening instead of a Pap or cotesting with both an HPV and a Pap test, the researchers say.
