Alin Mituța hosted an event at the European Parliament to mark the launch of the PROTECT-EUROPE EU4Health project that is ECO is coordinating. We are very grateful for his support.
Commenting on the launch, Alin Mituta MEP said: "HPV causes 5% of cancers worldwide. That need not be. More and better communication is paramount, and PROTECT-EUROPE will help provide that. It is hard to overstate the importance of this new initiative and why I have worked closely with ECO to launch it. I look forward to further collaboration on such matters, especially as I am now part of ECO’s National and European Parliamentarians for Cancer Action."
Alin Mituța is a Romanian Member of the European Parliament sitting with the Renew Europe Group, and a member of, among others, ITRE and COVI committees.
Health is one of his priorities as MEP and he is a strong advocate for more EU competences for health, which he defended in the Conference on the Future of Europe. Under the health umbrella, he is also a strong supporter of EU measures to tackle inequalities between Member States especially in terms of access to HPV vaccination and screening.
He graduated in EU affairs at Sciences Po Paris and he spent his career working in the European institutions (European Parliament, Council of the EU and the European Economic and Social Committee), as well as state secretary and head of cabinet of the Prime Minister of Romania.
