Beating Cancer: National parliaments’ view on Europe’s plans – EP BECA Committee

27 September @ 09:00 - 12:00 CEST

Meeting of the Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA)

Monday 27 September 2021 (9.00-12.00)

ROOM: Paul-Henri SPAAK 3C050

The European Parliament Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA), in cooperation with the Legislative Dialogue Unit of the Directorate for Relations with national Parliaments, will organise a virtual Interparliamentary Committee Meeting (ICM) with Members of national Parliaments of the EU Member States to discuss the fight against cancer in Europe.

This Interparliamentary Committee meeting will provide a good forum for a debate between European and national parliamentarians on the BECA draft reportprepared by Véronique Trillet-Lenoir, and Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan presented by the European Commission in February 2021. Stella Kyriakides, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, will deliver a key note address. A draft programme is available here.

The event will be an opportunity for an exchange of experiences and best practices on how national and EU actions can contribute to a better rate of cancer prevention, support excellence in research, improve existing and encourage new treatments, and ensure equal access to cancer care throughout the Union. It will also offer the opportunity to address how the coronavirus pandemic affected cancer care and cancer patients, and how we could make cancer care more resilient in the future.

Due to the COVID-19-measures in place, this meeting will be held remotely via video conference.

You can follow the meeting live here.
