This report up-dates information on the national situation of cervical cancer screening in the member states of the European Union. There is yet high diversity in the status of cervical screening, and rapid changes expected to occur in the situation in many countries. It is important to underline differences in the health care and other components in order to allow a proper interpretation of the summary results published elsewhere in this Special Issue. The brief national descriptions along with up-dated information on the recent references are available from all but one member states.
