The IARC Screening Group

The IARC Screening Group generates evidence on the accuracy, reproducibility, efficacy, benefits, harmful effects, and cost-effectiveness of various early detection interventions, with the ultimate goal of guiding the development of public health policies for implementing early detection in a variety of health-care settings, in particular in low- and middle-income countries. The research portfolio of the Group includes intervention and implementation research studies on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination.

The Screening Group develops various training resources to catalyse and augment capacity building in close collaboration with national institutions and government health services.
