Cancer - we hear about it almost every day on the news, at work or in discussions with family and friends. Given the incidence rates prevailing nowadays in the European Union, one in three men and one in four women could be directly affected by cancer in the first 75 years of their lives. Cancer is the second biggest cause of death after heart diseases in the European Union. Every year, it claims over one and a half million lives and changes the destiny of another 2.5 million citizens diagnosed with it. With the population ageing, the cancer death toll is set to increase even further.

 

As Deputy Director-General for Consumers and Health, my objective is to tackle cancer on all fronts. On the one hand, by boosting research and cooperation, we can ensure that efficient treatments are developed to treat cancer patients across the EU. On the other hand, by raising awareness about cancer prevention our ambitious goal is to reduce new cancer cases by 15% by 2020.
