WHO European Conference on Screening


11–12 February 2020, UN City, Copenhagen

On 11–12 February 2020, WHO/Europe will host the WHO European Conference on Screening. Taking a specific focus on screening for noncommunicable diseases and throughout the life-course, this conference aims to increase the effectiveness of screening programmes in the Region, maximizing benefits and minimizing harms.

Policy-makers from Member States, technical experts, representatives of WHO collaborating centres and non-state actors, as well as a WHO Secretariat team from global, regional and country levels are invited.

The meeting will generate knowledge and provide tools to improve screening practices and policy decision-making related to screening, responding to priorities identified at the WHO European Technical Consultation on Screening held in February 2019.
