Posted on 03.03.2020

On World Cancer Day (4 February 2020) the European Commission formally launched Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan with the four pillars:  (1) prevention measures, (2) early detection and diagnosis, (3) treatment and care and (4) quality of life. More information is available on the Commission website, along with a roadmap for implementation.

On 3 March 2020 Medtech Europe submitted its response to the roadmap, highlighting the need for new care delivery models and for addressing co-morbidities and infections (AMR), the value of diagnostic information, and the potential of digital health and data sharing.
