NCID 2012 interview with David Zaridze

Cancer prevention and epidemiology in Russia

Dr David Zaridze talks about the state of cancer prevention and screening in Russia. On the whole, cancer is declining in Russia, especially smoking and alcohol related cancers. This reduction comes from a large effort to change the public perception of smoking and drinking. In Russia, many people are not aware of the extremely detrimental side effects of drinking and smoking and while the numbers are improving in these preventable cancers, the need for screening and early detection is increasing. Examples of success in screening programmes can be seen in the cytological screening for cervical cancer in Scandinavian countries.
