The European Cancer Organisation is continuing the implementation of its strategy, not least because of the impact of COVID-19 on cancer patients across Europe and that Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan is still on track to be launched before the end of 2020. It has been strongly advocating for the elimination of Inequalities in Cancer Care to be prioritised in both the Beating Cancer Plan and the EU Cancer Mission.

SIOG Board Member, Dr Nicolò Battisti is the co-chair of the Inequalities Network of the European Cancer Organisation.
