WEBINAR: Lung Cancer in Europe: New Ideas for Policy Action

15 July, 15.00-16.00 CET

This year more than half a million Europeans will be diagnosed with lung cancer. While many countries have improved the management of lung cancer through better prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment, the disease continues to claim 1 in 5 cancer deaths across Europe, posing significant challenges to patients and healthcare systems. To identify further opportunities for improvement, The Economist Intelligence Unit made a comparative analysis of lung cancer policies across 27 countries. Over the course of 18 months almost 200 experts provided their insights and advice.

During this webinar we will discuss the main findings of this new, landmark study, and discuss in particular the role that governments and policy makers can play in addressing the high burden that lung cancer presents.
