CBC Vznik Ltd.
Concept B CZ
Lung cancer significantly influences individuals and society. The mortality rate of the disease is high and its negative personal, social and economic consequences are important. Reducing its incidence and mortality rate is achievable through focussing on the early stage of the disease and comprehensive care. Early diagnosis, treatment, research, education, outcome analysis, and follow-up are all of equal interest in the program strategy of the CBC. The health of the individual is right at its centre.
