Past Events

The European Institute of Women's Health, an EPAAC collaborating partner, has released a report on the roundtable discussion held alongside the European Week Against Cancer at the European Parliament on 24 May 2011.

The European Parliament Roundtable was organised "...in collaboration with the European Institute of Women's Health,
entitled "Stop Cancer Before it Starts." It specifically focused on two cancers in women—lung cancer and cervical cancer. The two cancers can be prevented if women take action now". An excerpt from the report: "the Roundtable agreed that measures to get women to stop smoking and present for population-based cervical cancer prevention must be encouraged and supported. It is important to reach out to women, including disadvantaged groups, to get the message across that these two specific cancers are stopped before they start."
