Planning of a screening programme for cervical cancer in Liguria and evaluation of the attitude of the female population towards cancer detection.
In 1990 an investigation aimed at evaluating the possibility of organizing a regional screening programme for the early detection of cervical cancer was carried out in Liguria.
Information on resources available for early detection of cervical cancer was obtained from 12 of 20 Public Health Units; a screening programme was feasible in 8 of them.
The number of Pap tests examined was evaluted for 6 of 20 cytology laboratories.
Only one laboratory examined more than 20,000 Pap tests in 1989 and, according to the international guidelines, can be a referring centre for screening.
