Aligned with the objectives of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG3) of the UN2030 agenda, the objective of this meeting will be an international proposal, by public health experts and decision makers for the development of geriatric principles in routine oncology care in national contexts.
