On 28 January from 13.45 - 18.45, MEPs from the Beating Cancer committee will discuss with ten leading experts how to deliver the best possible care to cancer patients in the EU. Topics will range from cancer drugs to multidisciplinary cancer care with a specific angle on paediatric and rare cancers and the social determinants in accessing cancer care.

Access for patients to high quality, affordable and timely cancer care is a key element in the fight against cancer. Good healthcare services improve patient outcomes, reduce the suffering and side effects of treatments as much as possible and enhance the quality of life for survivors. Good healthcare outcomes also contribute to the efficiency and sustainability of the health care systems.
