What is National and European Parliamentarians for Cancer Action?

Bringing together National and European parliamentarians who are committed to beating cancer and tackling inequalities in cancer on a national and European basis, this new Network for political action will: 

  • Heighten political understanding of the inequalities in cancer care requiring priority attention across Europe 
  • Identify key legislative and other opportunities for targeted action to reduce inequalities in cancer care, including at both national and European level 
  • Convey political consensus and recommendations from politicians across Europe united in shared resolve to improve the fight against cancer in all European countries 


Membership of National and European Parliamentarians for Cancer Action is an active demonstration of an individual’s personal commitment to unified action on cancer, across political and national divides. Click on the image below for more information.

Join us at the European Cancer Summit 2022 for the official launch of National and European Parliamentarians for Cancer Action.

The European Cancer Summit 2022 will also launch an allied initiative, the European Cancer Pulse, to more accurately track and record cancer inequalities in Europe, helping to pinpoint areas for priority political action:

How We Operate

Bringing together national and European cancer policy champions and as a bottom-up cross-border network, ‘Parliamentarians for Cancer Action’ will be driven by its members. Members will be responsible for identifying priorities and key action areas to tackle pertinent challenges and issues in cancer care prevailing in their countries.  

Our Guiding Principles

  • We use latest country data and evidence to inform our discussions, decisions, and policy solutions 
  • We listen, learn, and recognise that while each country faces its unique cancer challenges, working together we can make important steps to solve them 
  • We share best practices openly and foster collaboration and expertise-sharing 
  • We work to empower each other to drive change in cancer care
