What is health screening?
In the Netherlands we have three cancer screening programs: breast screening, cervical screening and bowel cancer screening. Health screening is offered by the government. Participation is free and voluntary. Health screening is carried out by the health screening organisation, Bevolkingsonderzoek Nederland.
