In November 2002 a new international society was set up to provide a forum for the disparate groups involved in medical screening. The Medical Screening Society will provide a forum for people interested in screening to discuss their ideas and problems, to debate controversial topics in a friendly and constructive way, and to share their experiences. The Journal of Medical Screening will be the journal of the Society.
The Society will:
- Set up working groups to look at problems and controversies in medical screening.
- Produce scientific reports that would be published in the Journal of Medical Screening.
- Hold periodic scientific meetings on screening.
- Have a page in each issue of the Journal of Medical Screening
