EU Commission - DG SANTE
The European Commission Directorate-General Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) has the policy leadership on the EU health realted policies aiming to protect and improve public health.
DG SANTE takes forward several initiatives on cancer: among those, ECIBC.
ECIBC is carried on with a focus on scientific evidence and long term sustainability, building upon a platform bringing together a wide range of actors at EU level in a transparent way.
The Commission expert group on Cancer Control, which is a forum for Member States and stakeholders to provide input into cancer policy development at EU level, will regularly review the development of the ECBIC in order to guarantee the full compatibility and coordination of the initiative with the overall EU policy on cancer.
