European Parliament (Room JAN 6Q2), Brussels, Belgium
Hosted by MEP Mr Alojz Peterle, MAC President
On 18th November 2016 SIOPE joined efforts with the Members of the European Parliament Against Cancer (MAC) to unveil the SIOPE European Cancer Plan for Children and Adolescents.
Child cancer is still the biggest killer of children in Europe after safety incidents, and the majority of survivors experience adverse late-effects with impact on quality of life. The European Cancer Plan for Children and Adolescents is the long-term vision of the entire child cancer community to increase the cure rate, improve the quality of survivorship, and foster multi-stakeholder dialogue and cooperation for the best results.
The SIOPE – MAC event will present the European Cancer Plan for Children and Adolescents – from the extensive consultation and consensus-building process leading up to its formulation and the prominent role of parents, patients and survivors, to the best ways towards implementation through joint efforts.
Collaborative models and enabling EU initiatives will be addressed, in particular on:
- Eradicating inequalities in access to treatment, care, and expertise
- Boosting innovation in medicines development
- Securing optimal organisation of follow up care for survivors
