A Call to Action to Eliminate the Barriers to Effective Research and High Quality Care in the Field of Rare Cancers

The ‘Call to Action Against Rare Cancers’ has been developed as part of the campaign and is based on the political recommendations that resulted from the conference ‘Rare Tumours in Europe: Challenges and Solutions’ which was held in November 2008 in Brussels and which brought together 150 European representatives from government bodies, research institutes, healthcare professionals, industry, patient groups and health advocacy organisations.

For further information about the campaign, political recommendations, links to other important European initiatives impacting on rare cancers and to sign the petition please visit, go here.
