The newly established European Parliament Special Committee on Beating Cancer represents an important step in the long-term dedication of many members of the Parliament to the fight against cancer. The Special Committee on Beating Cancer includes 33 MEPs. The list is available here.
The Chair and Vice-Chair of the Special Committee will be decided at the committee’s constitutive meeting in September.
We encourage the Special Committee to help ensure the Beating Cancer Plan, EU Cancer Mission and other connected initiatives are bold, ambitious and inspiring. Key cross-cutting issues such as tackling inequalities, enhancing our workforce and giving focus to the quality of cancer care that patients receive, should be important areas of the Committee’s attention.
