European Cancer Organisation urges support for cancer patients and professionals in Gaza and Israel

23 October 2023

Few events in recent times have polarised public opinion the world over like the crisis in Gaza and Israel.

Regardless of one's political perspective, the real-life consequences for citizens in Gaza include a desperate lack of food, water, and medicine, and for cancer patients little to no access to the care and treatment they require. Yet oncology professionals inside Gaza continue to do all they can to care for their patients under these terrible circumstances.

Our hearts and thoughts are with all cancer patients in the region, and the professionals seeking to preserve life. We urge the international community to do everything possible to support them.
