The right to health protection is a fundamental right of the person. But one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers worldwide, breast cancer, is detected in Romania, in 85% of cases, in the advanced stage of the disease, in the context where mammography as a screening method would reduce mortality by 20%. Is there a national prevention program in Romania that transposes the regulations on the European Union level? Romania has created new legal measures in order to improve the right to health protection for its own citizens, but the achiving of this goals implies more atention to the preventive medicine, including screening for breast cancer.
