Cancer is a personal story for all of us.

This is why we are working on prevention, early diagnosis, and equal access to care.

Ahead of #WorldCancerDay and a year since the #EUCancerPlan, we are launching 4️new actions with specific objectives.
Here they are: ⬇️ Image
Objective 1 ➞ Everyone in our 🇪🇺 Union should get the cancer treatment they need.

Our Cancer Inequalities Registry will help identify and tackle inequalities in cancer prevention and care due to gender, educational attainment and disparities between regions.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Objective 2 ➞ Ensuring 90% of the EU population who qualify for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screenings are offered it by 2025.

Finding cancer at an early stage can save lives. This is why a cancer screening call for evidence is important.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Objective 3 ➞ Eliminating cervical cancer by vaccinating against HPV at least 90% of girls, and to significantly increase the vaccination of boys by 2030.

We are working with EU countries to increase awareness of HPV and promote vaccination uptake.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Objective 4 ➞ Improving the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.

There are over 12 million cancer survivors.

Our Network of Youth Cancer Survivors will connect young cancer survivors, and help strengthen long-term follow-up in cancer care plans.

#EUCancerPlan Image
Our plan against cancer, is Europe’s roadmap of action to make a difference in the lives of all cancer patients and their loved ones.

#EUCancerPlan concerns us all.

The EU remains steadfast in its commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Ukraine is a priority partner for the European Union. We are stepping up our support, both in the immediate and medium-term.

Since the outbreak of the conflict in 2014, the EU and European financial institutions have allocated over €17 billion in grants and loans to Ukraine, including humanitarian aid and socio-economic development support.

The EU's Economic and Investment plan for the Eastern Partnership will also leverage up to €6.5 billion in investments for Ukraine to help spur the long-term recovery from the COVID-19 in Ukraine.

A plan that foresees five flagships for Ukraine 👇
