The European Commission launched the European Partnership for Action Against Cancer 2011-2013, on 29 September 2009.
The press release, speeches and videos from the launch are available on the Partnership's official website www.EPAAC.eu
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:
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.
