Putting bladder cancer on the global health policy agenda

The ‘Putting bladder cancer on the global health policy agenda’ report is a summary of the presentations and dialogue at WBCPC 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting, held in September. We have brought together leaders in bladder cancer research, advocacy, patient organisations and the pharmaceutical industry. Participants from 25 countries worldwide have joined us to explore the topic: What action is needed to place bladder cancer higher on the global health policy agenda?

«Telling a compelling bladder cancer story is the key to promoting a better understanding of the condition, increasing the appreciation of its importance and attracting more participation and investment in this field.

Ken Bagshaw, President, World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition

We have organised this report around three themes that drive the WBCPC strategy: Building Community, Raising Awareness, and Engaging in Advocacy, with two objectives:

  1. To be a resource that shares useful know-how, approaches, practices and ideas – to support all those building or strengthening bladder cancer patient groups in their country.
  2. To inform discussions in the WBCPC network as we develop our action plan for the coming years.

We hope the exchanges summarised in this report inform and inspire you!

We invite you to continue the discussion on Twitter using hashtags #WBCPC2020 or #BladderCancerAware
