ECL is a key contributor to the European Commission process in the development of an EU Partnership for Action Against Cancer, participating in the first brainstorming workshop and in the recent meeting exploring the structure, actions and areas of the Partnership.  We are currently leading on Health Promotion and Prevention, one of several important technical work packages in the Partnership:

  • Health Promotion and Prevention (Work Package 5);
  • Screening and Early Diagnosis (Work Package 6)
  • Identification and dissemination of good practice in healthcare (Work Package 7);
  • Cancer research (Work Package 8);
  • Health information and data (Work Package 9)
  • National Cancer Plans (Work Package 10)


A main action by ECL in Prevention is the re-launch of the European Week Against Cancer (EWAC), taking place 25 to 31 May each year, and the wide communication of the European Code Against Cancer.


 The Association of European Cancer Leagues implements activities which receive financial support from the European Commission under an Operating Grant from the European Union's Health Programme (2014-2020).
