On 16 February 2022, the Parliament adopted its final recommendations for a comprehensive and coordinated EU strategy to fight cancer. It focuses on:
- Cancer prevention,
- Equal access to cancer care across borders, and
- A European approach addressing medicine shortages.

This adoption of this recommendation is the result of 15 months of an unprecedented consultation process through a series of public hearings and exchanges between Members, national parliaments, international organisations and experts. The main lessons learnt from the public consultation held by BECA on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer care in the EU have also been incorporated in the report.
