Abstract

In the last 20 years, screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) has undergone a paradigm shift once its prevention potential was recognized. It has progressed from parochial ad hoc opportunistic activities, led by clinical champions, to a structured, organized public health priority tailored to specific health-care environments in population-based settings. Indeed, 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of a global initiative established by the Organisation Mondiale d’Endoscopie Digestive (OMED, now the World Endoscopy Organization [WEO]) that was charged “to promote the international implementation of CRC screening programs.”1 This commentary evaluates this remarkable health care transformation and the reasons for its success.
