Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan – Better access to cancer care in Europe

EU40, MEP Tomislav Sokol, Ph.D. (EPP) & MEP Nicolae Stefanuta (RE) are pleased to invite you to a debate titled “Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan: Better access to cancer care in Europe?”

President of the Commission Ursula von der Leyen declared that the fight against cancer will be a flagship priority for the European Commission, sparking a vibrant debate on how to deliver on this political ambition for patients across Europe. With a renewed emphasis on fighting cancer backed by strong political momentum, the EU can play a crucial role in improving and addressing inequalities in cancer care through joint action.

During the event, experts and stakeholders will exchange views on the concrete actions that should be taken, how we can ensure uptake and measure success, and how the cancer community can work together at this critical juncture to ensure an effective future cancer policy that delivers impact for patients across Europe.

We are delighted to count on the first public keynote address on cancer by Commissioner for health and food safety Stella Kyriakides.
