The European Beating Cancer Plan sets out a new European Union approach to cancer prevention, treatment and care. This extraordinary initiative is a key pillar of a stronger European Health Union in its mission of fighting a disease that causes 1.3 million deaths in Europe every year. Spain will assume the Presidency of the Council of the European Union during the second half of 2023. This represents a new opportunity to address, together with our European partners, a special attention to cancer.
Implementation of the European Beating Cancer Plan in the member states offers the opportunity to develop concrete actions in each country to increase cancer prevention, survival and quality of life of cancer patients. The event will count with the participation of renowned European experts in the field and will act as meeting point for reflection and discussion, where ideas can be exchanged on how to overcome this European health emergency.
