The European Commission’s President von der Leyen is launching a European plan to fight cancer to support Member States and stakeholders in improving cancer related issues on all levels across Europe.
Therefore, with a strong emphasis on citizen involvement, the second and final European Commission public consultation questionnaire is open until 7 May 2020 (midnight Brussels time) to collect individual and organisations’ views to feed into the European cancer plan.
The consultation is a decisive chance for the paediatric cancer community to advocate that our cancer issues are appropriately addressed in this unprecedented European Cancer Plan initiative.
The number of responses emphasising paediatric cancer will count, therefore your individual and institutional contributions will be instrumental in this effort.
To facilitate your contributions, SIOP Europe has prepared a number of resources that you can refer to:
- The European Commission’s Public Consultation Homepage – access to Questionnaire
- Guidance on responding to the Questionnaire
- Overview of key messages from SIOPE – working version
- Frequently asked Questions
- 4 May 19:00 CEST on ZOOM
Chaired by Prof. Pam Kearns, SIOP Europe President, and Gilles Vassal, SIOP Europe Board Member in charge of Policy Affairs
We encourage you to forward these resources and motivate your members, colleagues, patients, survivors, parents and families to fill in the questionnaire.
The SIOP Europe office remains available for any queries or requests that you may have. It is our pleasure to facilitate your and your network’s contribution to this important initiative
