Cancer Thematic Innovation Ecosystem

Join us for the launch of our Cancer Thematic Innovation Ecosystem on 30th of April 2024 15:00 - 16:30 CET!

Co-led by ECHAlliance and 4P-CAN project, the Cancer Thematic Innovation Ecosystem aims to embody a shared vision for a future where innovative collaborations lead to significant improvements in cancer prevention and care, especially in the most challenged regions. The establishment of a permanent TIE on Cancer aligns with this year’s  World Cancer Day theme of “Close the Care Gap,” which highlights global disparities in cancer care. Factors such as limited access to healthcare, financial barriers, stigma, discrimination, and a lack of awareness contribute to these disparities.

 

This first launch webinar, which will take place on 30th of April from 15:00 to 16:30 CET, will focus on “Cancer Prevention Barriers & Healthy Behavior Adherence.”

 

At ECHAlliance, we understand that the battle against cancer extends beyond medical advancements, it encompasses issues of equity and access among citizens. The permanent Thematic Innovation Ecosystem on Cancer aims to address these critical issues.

 

4P-CAN is an EU Project committed to contributing to the 5th edition of the European Code Against Cancer by identifying barriers—both in terms of public policies and individual adherence to healthy behaviors—that limit the adoption of cancer prevention measures across Central and Eastern Europe. This effort seeks to reduce inequalities in cancer prevention among European citizens. The TIE on Cancer will foster connections with other ecosystems worldwide, facilitating a collaborative approach to bridge the care gap and advance the global fight in support of cancer primary prevention.
