  Abstract:
  The paper reports current data on the health status of women in our country, from the aspect of detection and treatment of malignant diseases of the lower genital tract. It has been concluded that these diseases are common, whereas their detection is late, which renders the treatment insufficiently effective. The present possibilities for prevention and early detection of these diseases, as well as for successful treatment in early stages have been stressed, but also the need for regular screening of the women of specified age groups to enable this. With the objective to improve the present status in this area, the National Program has been established, the institutions responsible for its implementation being: the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Serbia and the Section for Cervical Pathology and Colposcopy of the Yugoslav Association of Gynecologists and Obstetricians (UGOJ). The report presents activities performed to date concerning the realization of this program and offers the first indicators of its successful introduction.
