A one-day Educational event was held May 30th 2013 for educators from the regional institutes of public health at the Institute of Public Health of Serbia ‘Dr. Milan Jovanovic Batut’ in Belgrade, Serbia. Opening remarks were made by Dr. Simo Vukovic, State Secretary of the Ministry of Health and Dr. Dragan Ilic, Director of the Institute of Public Health of Serbia.  Dr. Simo Vukovic outlined the legal regulation and management of the organized Cancer Screening Programme in Serbia, focusing on the importance of the participants within the Programme. Furthermore, the training included a detailed presentation of the guidelines for the implementation of the National Programme for screening of cervical cancer, breast cancer, and colorectal cancer, presented by the Coordinators of the Project Components, Dr. Snezana Zujkovic, Dr. Aleksandra Jaric, and Dr. Milena Scepanovic.

Project Team Leader, Prof.Dr. Dusan Keber, gave an overview of the project results and the importance of the Cancer Screening Programme for the fight against Cancer. Dr. Keber placed importance on the establishment of the Project Office, which has become an integral part of the Institute of Public Health and he presented the results of the pilot screening for colorectal cancer throughout the different regions in Serbia.  He described the goals achieved and introduced a plan of future activities, also stressing the crucial importance of the Educational Component of the Programme and the role of health educators.
