|Incidence of Cervical Cancer||11/100.000 women/year (2004)|
|Mortality of Cervical Cancer||3.9/100.000 women/year (2004)|
|Belgium (2002 – Globacan): 667 new cases and 388 deaths|
|Strategy for colposcopy training||Yearly one day courses are organised by the workgroup for beginners and experienced specialists (with different programs and interactive sessions) according to the EFC standards.
Clinical training is offered by university and large non-university training hospitals.
