The European Cancer Organisation (ECO) has published an open letter to EU and national level decision-makers following significant last-minute weakening of the proposals for Council Recommendations on Cancer Screening that undermine scientific advice. 

The ESR shares the concern of the European cancer community at these highly concerning developments and fully endorse ECO’s open letter and its suggested actions. The EU Council Recommendations on cancer screening must be protected.

We encourage ESR members to disseminate the letter amongst their contacts at political level.
