Week Against Cancer – A call to accelerate the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan

On the occasion of European Week Against Cancer (EWAC), taking place every year between 25 and 31 May, the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition (WBCPC) joins the community call for bringing forward the ambitions within Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan at the national and regional level.

The EWAC campaign and the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL) aim to highlight the role that each one of us has in accelerating the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.

One year ago, the European Commission (EC) launched Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan to signal its renewed commitment to cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and quality of life for people affected by cancer. Since then, the European Union (EU) has put the necessary elements in place for its implementation and is beginning to deliver on its objectives.

All individuals and cancer and health-focused organisations are warmly invited to join to ensure that the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan meets the needs identified by the European cancer community and works well for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and their families.
