Health Council of the Netherlands: Population screening for cervical cancer

The Hague: Health Council of the Netherlands, 2011; publication no. 2011/07E. ISBN 978-90-5549-866-6

The Netherlands has a good cervical cancer screening programme. Nevertheless, there are ways in which cervical cancer prevention might be improved. A new test method is available, for example; participation amongst women in certain subgroups could be increased and follow-up for screen-positive women could also be improved. In this report, the Health Council reviews developments in this field and gives advice on reshaping of the screening programme.
