The purpose of this convergence study was to analysis the current status of the cancer screening and background healthcare systems in Korea and Japan. First, Cancer Screening Program is coordinated well with National Health Insurance Service(NHIS) under a unified insurer system in Korea. But in Japan, there are over 3,500 insurer and coordinating a comprehensive strategy for cancer screening promotion has been very difficult. Second, Rate of cancer screening is influenced by public healthcare system. In Korea public healthcare does not cover a wide rage of services. Almost free cancer screening provides high incentive to participation. It is very important to understand the impacts of each healthcare system when designing an efficient cancer screening system.
