Bulgaria is to allocate Lev1.7 million ($770,000) to a five-year cervical cancer screening programme. Some 650,000 women between the ages of 25 and 60 will be offered screening every three years. This is part of a cancer prevention programme aimed at reducing cervical, prostate and breast cancer. A further Lev10 million will be allocated to mammograms for annual checks of women aged 40-49 and every three years for women aged 50-69. Some 600,000 women will benefit. A total of Lev1.5 million will go towards annual prostate cancer examinations for men over 45.
