The European Week Against Cancer (EWAC) is an annual campaign that runs from 25th to 31st of May under the leadership of the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL). During the event, all individuals, and cancer and health-focused organisations are invited to join the campaign and let their voices be heard in the fight against cancer in Europe.
In this context, eCAN has created its own campaign for the occasion under the title #eCANtribution. The aim is to spread the word about how the local/regional institutions that take part in the Joint Action work to improve the integration of telemedicine and remote monitoring in health care systems for cancer prevention and care.
The European project will present, through short videos, some of its partners and the actions they make to contribute to the main objectives of eCAN: reduce cancer care inequalities across the European Union and improve effectiveness, efficiency and quality in cancer prevention and care, particularly for cross-border emergencies and health crises, such as COVID-19.
As the week progresses, the various statements made by eCAN participants in the framework of the European Week Against Cancer will be published below.
And you, how do you contribute to tackle cancer in Europe?
