Annex 2 - The fight against breast cancer in the European Union (written declaration)

Written declaration No 17/2015 submitted under Rule 136 of Parliament's Rules of Procedure by Nessa Childers, Simona Bonafè, Anna Záborská, Lidia Joanna Geringer de Oedenberg, Françoise Grossetête, Marisa Matias, Emma McClarkin, Biljana Borzan, Alojz Peterle and Miriam Dalli, on the fight against breast cancer in the European Union1 (minutes of 7.9.2015, item 9) and signed by 394 Members.

Text of the written declaration:

1.   It is important to implement nationwide mammography screening and multidisciplinary specialist breast units (SBU) by the 2016 deadline, as called for in the European Parliament resolutions of 2003 and 2006 and required by the European Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Breast Cancer Screening and Diagnosis (4th edition) so as to reduce the mortality rate for breast cancer patients – 91495 women in the EU died from breast cancer in 2012 .

2.   Among the hundreds of thousands of women diagnosed with breast cancer every year – 367090 in 2012 – those with metastatic breast cancer should have access to, and be treated in, an SBU, and their ongoing needs for care and psychosocial services should be coordinated and supported by the SBU as per the EU Guidelines .

3.   The Commission is hence called upon to ensure that the ECIBC (European Commission Initiative on Breast Cancer) project delivers an accreditation protocol for breast cancer services by 2016; this protocol must ensure that mammography screening programmes and SBUs meet the requirements of the current EU Guidelines and those of the updated version to be undertaken by the ECIBC in 2015 .

4.   This declaration, together with the names of the signatories, is forwarded to the Council and the Commission.
