About the event
The Czech Republic intends to utilize its Presidency of the Council of the European Union to further support joint efforts to reduce the suffering caused by cancer and to discuss the implementation of leading European policies in the fight against cancer.
The purpose of the expert Conference is founded on the premise that early detection, affordable treatment, and patient-centred approach to clinical decision-making in oncology make the Europe´s Beating Cancer Plan to a life-saving instrument.

- Improving early detection of cancer and screening schemes in EU
The Conference will bring together around 100 experts from all EU Member States, including delegates from national oncology and statistical organizations, as well as senior representatives of the European Commission, World Health Organization, leading European initiatives on cancer prevention and control, and last but not least, representatives of European patient organization.
