World Cancer Day is a global event taking place every year on February 4, uniting the world’s population in the fight against cancer. It aims to help save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action.
The ESR is proud to be a member of the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) and is committed to promoting training and research in the field and working towards better outcomes for cancer patients. With an ESR Executive Council member sitting on the ECCO board, the ESR is also privileged to play an active role in shaping cancer policy in Europe via the organisation's lobbying activities with the EU.
