In the organised screening program women aged 30–60 years are invited to screening with personal letter every five years. Also is existing an opportunistic screening program in Estonia (Pap-smears are taken during the gynecologic examination by gynecologists). Screening test is Pap-smear.
Screening rate 45,3% (organized screening 2018), 3 year estimated rate 75-80%
Incidence of Cervical Cancer 14,6/100 000 (2016)
175 new cases per year (on average)
Mortality of Cervical Cancer 8,95/100 000
65 cases per year (on average)
Strategy for colposcopy training Yearly attendees at colposcopic course of the first category (residents, gynecologists). Practical training courses annually at OB/GYN Clinic of Tartu University Hospital. Courses are certified by the National Society. The goal of the colposcopic training programme is to ensure that these gynecologists are able to take an adaquate smear and to deal adaquatly with the result.
Institutions to deal with Abnormal Screening-Results Organized screening smear is performed by midwifes. Opportunistic screening smear is performed by routine-gynecologists. Patients with abnormal screeening results are sent to colposcopy examination and if needed for consultation in the University Hospital or county hospitals. The standards are set by the Estonian Gynaecology Society guidelines (version 3, 2014)
