Cervical cancer screening in Georgia, benchmarking on the example of the Czech Republic and Lithuania
Young Researcher: Gvantsa Dadiani
At the end of 2013, 1537 women were registered in Georgia, diagnosed with cervical cancer. However, according to the Cancer Registry, the incidence of cervical cancer in 2017 per 100,000 women decreased significantly after the increase observed in 2015-2016. Only 1 case of the disease was detected in the age group under 25 years. According to the same registry, the diagnostics of new cases of cervical cancer in stages I and II of the disease varies from 52% to 55%, however, it is important to note that the incidence of cervical cancer in Georgia exceeds the average of the European region and CIS countries.
The project aims to conduct an in-depth study in the form of a comparative analysis of available data on the organization and implementation of cervical cancer screening in Georgia and similar socio-economic countries to highlight important points that will allow to formulate some conclusions and develop recommendations  in terms of further effective organization of screening.
