Project description

The cross-border project aims to solve the problem of the low rate of BCC detection in the early stages of the disease. More than 50% оf oncological diseases are detected in later stages, when classical treatment methods are often insufficiently effective. Early diagnosis of disease would make treatment simpler and cheaper, and more patients would fully recover.

In the frame of the project, 3 partners will join their forces to increase the number of patients who undergo breast and colorectal cancer (BCC) medical examination in partnering districts Klaipeda and Kaliningrad with the use of modern-day equipment and innovative methodologies of diagnostics.

Implementation period

24 months (from 2019-07-24 til 2021-07-23)

Programme funding
