Joint Expression of Concern About the Co-funding Model for Delivery of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan 

December 2022

Whilst enthusiasm in the cancer community for Europe's Beating Cancer Plan remains high, concern has been growing about the viability of its main implementation funding stream, EU4Health. This programme typically requires organisations interested in leading or contributing to implementation actions to find 20%-40% of the costs incurred themselves.

A letter, signed by a wide variety of impacted organisations, from across Europe, sets out these concerns in more detail, and refers to potential avenues for redress. It is submitted and published in constructive spirit and in anticipation that progress may be achieved on the matters raised without undue delay, not for the benefit of the signatory organisations but for the successful implementation of Europe's Beating Cancer Plan.
