ECPC is the unified voice of cancer patients across Europe!
The European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) works for a Europe of equality, where all European cancer patients have timely and affordable access to the best treatment and care available, throughout their life. ECPC believes that cancer patients are the most important partners in the fight against cancer and against all the cancer-related issues affecting our society. Policy makers, researchers, doctors and industry should recognise cancer patients as co-creators of their own health.
ECPC is one of the few patient organisations directly involved in research. The European Cancer Patient Coalition draws on fundamental knowledge and understanding of the patients' situation by working through our Members. Its "on the field" engagement enhances ECPC's capacity to truly represent patients at the EU level, providing irreplaceable first-hand understanding of the issues revolving around cancer patients. Furthermore, EU funded Health and Research projects allow us to be on the forefront of scientific developments on cancer by providing the patient's perspective while draining fundamental knowledge on the science behind cancer.
