    Goals / Remit

    Youth Cancer Europe is made up of a network of youth cancer organisations from across Europe, focusing on the most urgent unmet needs of young people with cancer:

    -- Working towards age appropriate and equal access to effective cancer treatment across Europe;
    -- Improving long term follow-up and the quality of life of cancer survivors;
    -- Creating a network of patient advocates to increase the political and regulatory influence of young people with cancer.

    Youth Cancer Europe fosters direct contact between different collectives, ensuring that the voices of patients and survivors become a key part of how treatment and after-care is shaped across the continent. The organisation is committed to speak with a single representative voice of young people with cancer and together with other relevant stakeholders, through strategic partnerships in Europe, engage with EU policy-makers to influence European health and research policies.

    Youth Cancer Europe prepares young people (...)
