Contracting authority Contracting authority: Czech Society for Oncology

Research project based on the development of a web portal about the cancer epidemiology in the Czech Republic. Its primary objective is to provide access to these valuable data to a wide spectrum of users from the Czech Republic as well as from abroad.

The establishment of the System for Visualization of Oncology Data (SVOD) has been approved and guaranteed by the Board of the Czech Oncology Society (COS). The guarantor responsible for development of this information portal is IBA at the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science of MU. The project was initiated on the presumption that general information about the cancer epidemiology and related population risks should be freely available to all citizens of the Czech Republic. All these services are available to any user. The web portal represents a dynamic information platform, which is regularly updated and which lets the user perform a number of analyses according to their own choice. All analyses published this way contain safe and publishable data about the cancer epidemiology and do not contain any personal data of patients.
