In 2019, the University of Tartu, Rīga Stradiņš University, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, and the Norwegian Cancer Registry began the project “Towards elimination of cervical cancer: intelligent and personalized solutions for cancer screening” (2020–2023). The project’s main objective is to develop improved and personalized cancer screening methods within a sustainable health care system. The developed methods will integrate knowledge of biological disease mechanisms and available data from national population-based health registries, health care provision data, surveys, and Estonian genome bank to develop, validate, and determine the cost-effectiveness of specific artificial intelligence technology for the purpose of preventive medicine in cervical cancer.
