Manuel Heitor, as Honorary member of the European Academy of Cancer Sciences (EACS), will participate in an expert workshop organized with the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on 23-24 February in the Vatican to promote cancer research together with strategies to decrease inequalities in cancer therapeutics/care and prevention.
This expert workshop will address some of the important factors behind inequalities and how to improve equal access to cancer therapeutics/care, diagnostics and prevention.
The EU and its Member States' efforts are timely and of global interest. However, the success of these efforts will heavily depend on the strategies used to invigorate and interconnect the complete cancer research continuum. The conference will also address cancer therapeutics/care and prevention internationally, including in low-income countries.
The event follows that organized in 2018 (find here) also with the participation of Manuel Heitor among many other research and policy leaders in Europe, but will focus on strategies to decrease inequalities in cancer therapeutics/care and prevention including in the Global South.
