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.
