Mr Jacques Fracheboud presents results from one of the longest-running national breast cancer screening programmes at a press conference at the 8th European Breast Cancer Conference in Vienna.


The results show that the screening programme has contributed to a drop in deaths from the disease, that any harm caused by the screening, such as false positives and over-diagnosis, has been limited, and that the costs have been reasonable.
