Resolution on HPV cancer elimination passed by the Summit participants: 98% to 2%

Brussels, 12 September 2019: The ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit resolution on HPV cancer elimination has been passed by the ECCO 2019 Summit participants. Developed together with several ECCO member societies and a large network of interested organisations and experts, and including a public consultation period, the Summit resolution on HPV cancer elimination reads:

 

'By 2030, effective strategies to eliminate cancers caused by HPV
as a public health problem should be implemented
in all European countries.'


 

The full supporting text to the resolution is available here.

A further set of actions accompanying the resolution will continue to be developed with stakeholders following the ECCO 2019 European Cancer Summit.

A version of that action plan which was opened for public comment during the Summer of 2019, is available here.

For further information about the resolution and action plan, and how you and/or your organisation can get involved in the campaign to follow, please contact richard.price@ecco-org.eu
