Cancer Epidemiology and cancer registries in the Czech Republic

From the initiative of CSO, the Czech Republic has had, now for decades, Czech National Cancer Registry (NOR). The collection of data for this register is a statutory obligation and at the same time an essential element in the planning of demand for oncological care and assessment of its results. Drawing data from this national population register, the CSO assures the functioning of further clinical registers following above all the most expensive anti-tumour treatment and its results. In the complex oncological centres, registers following the quality of treatment are also being created.
