Members of national Parliaments and the European Parliament will discuss how national and EU actions can contribute to a better rate of cancer prevention, support excellence in research, improve existing and encourage new treatments, and ensure equal access to cancer care throughout the Union. © European Parliament

In the context of the COVID-19-pandemic, the President of the European Parliament has established a number of measures to contain the spread of the virus and to safeguard Parliament's core activities. The current precautionary measures do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are maintained to ensure the smooth running of the institution's legislative, budgetary, and scrutiny functions. The meetings allow for remote participation in a virtual environment.

Following these decisions, the next BECA meeting will take place on 27 September 2021 from 9:00 - 12:00. The Interparliamentary Committee Meeting with the participation of Members of EU national Parliaments is entitled "Turning the tide on cancer: the view of the national parliaments on Europe's Beating Cancer Plan".
