We believe that evidence-based advocacy is the best way to move bladder cancer patient experience and care forward in a positive direction.
As a global organisation, we engage strategic partners and policy makers to ensure bladder cancer is at the top of the global health policy agenda.
Our goal is to bring bladder cancer to the top of the global health policy agenda, and we do this by communicating the key challenges faced by the bladder cancer patient community at the policy-level to drive concrete change.
We work to bring attention to the needs of patients throughout the entirety of care – from prevention, to diagnosis, access to information, support, treatment and care, quality of life and survivorship. We also advocate for better research to improve our knowledge and understanding of bladder cancer.
We work together with our members and affiliates to support national advocacy efforts, develop key messages, and exchange experiences on what works well, and what doesn’t. We also help to build the capacity of our members to advocate for access to the best possible patient care, support and information.
Finally, we partner with a range of different organisations and stakeholders – including patient organisations, healthcare professionals, the private sector, academics and researchers, policymakers and other global patient organisations – to maximise the impact that we can have in our advocacy activities.
