The ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit on 12-14 September 2019 in Brussels, Belgium brought together worldwide leaders from cancer care, research, patient advocacy and public-private sectors in a unique multi-stakeholder forum. The theme of the second edition of the ECCO Summit is: “European Cancer Care: Across Borders”.
Reaching the 70:35 Vision for cancer – 70% long term survival for all cancer patients across Europe by 2035 – requires breaking down the borders of cancer care: between countries, professions, sectors and stakeholders.
The ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit:
- Debated leading-edge ideas in achieving improvement in cancer care
- Determined consensus resolutions for improving health care systems
- Decided on an action plan for the way forward to ensure ideas translate into policies that will impact daily clinical practice
