In a collaborative effort with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), All.Can International has been delighted to contribute valuable insights to the latest report on global inequalities: Beating Cancer Inequalities in the EU – Spotlight on Cancer Prevention and Early Detection.
The recently published OECD report addresses the latest trends in cancer incidence and mortality in the EU and reviews key cancer risk factors, cancer screening programmes and early diagnoses, and issues in the provision of high-quality cancer care. Country performance, cross-cutting challenges and new developments are examined with a particular focus on disparities by regions, socio-economic status and gender. The report provides policy makers with fiscal, regulatory and health systems organisation tools, as well as examples of initiatives that can be undertaken in primary care, workplaces, and schools to better control cancer and counter inequalities.
With a specific focus on efficiency throughout the entire cancer care continuum, All.Can provided crucial perspectives on the underlying causes and potential solutions to address these disparities.
This contribution to the OECD report emphasises the significance of diverse perspectives in addressing global inequalities. As we collectively navigate these challenges, collaboration across sectors proves essential.
