The French verb guérir in context:

Janvier 2008. La France tire le bilan de ses projets en matière de santé.

Le Gouvernement avait lancé un projet, étalé sur 3 ans, visant à mieux prévenir et guérir le cancer.

Dans sa globalité, son application a marqué des progrès car les maladies étant repérées plus tôt, il y a plus de chance de mener les patients sur la voie de la guérison.

Cependant, les chiffres montrent de grandes inégalités entre les régions.

En effet, la plupart d'entre elles n'ont pas respecté les règles préconisées par ce projet et encore beaucoup de gens ne désirent pas se soumettre à des examens de dépistage.

Même si l'opération est onéreuse, au moins elle porte ses fruits et peut être améliorée en poursuivant les efforts déjà fournis.

English translation:

January 2008. France is balancing the books of its medical field projects.

The Government had launched a three-year project aiming at better anticipating and curing cancer.

In its entirety, the way it has been applied has produced some progress, as the disease is being spotted earlier, and patients are more likely to be on the road to recovery.

However, figures show important inequalities between the regions.

Indeed, most of them disregarded the rules recommended in this project and many people still do not wish to take screening tests.

Even if the operation is expensive, at least it has born fruit and can be improved by continuing with the efforts already contributed.
