“The Cancer Momentum: Fighting Inequalities in Europe”

    CPE is proud to organise its 1st event at the European Parliament

    Cancer mortality varies widely across Europe, and survival depends on where you live. In particular, the inequality between countries in Central and South-Eastern Europe (CEE) and Western Europe (WE) is striking. We need to act now. This is why the Central European Cooperative Oncology Group (CECOG) and Cancer Patients Europe (CPE) are organising a session titled “The Cancer Momentum: Fighting Inequalities in Europe”. This session will be held at the European Parliament (room ASP1G3G9) and hosted by MEP Cristian Busoi, MEP Tomislav Sokol, and MEP Andreas Schieder.

    The Central European Cooperative Oncology Group (CECOG), together with several cancer stakeholders, Members of the European Parliament, and EU and national institutions, have created a platform to reduce health inequalities and improve patient access to cancer care. This platform was initiated in 2018 and delivered several stakeholder exchanges and publications. The latest outcome is a manifesto which we would like to present and discuss at this event on February 14th.

     

    We look forward to seeing you at the event!
