Cancer Prevention Europe

Cancer Prevention Europe (CPE), a consortium of organizations across the whole of Europe, aims to reduce morbidity and mortality from cancer in European populations through prevention and earlier diagnosis of the disease.

  • “Risk reduction has the potential to prevent around half of all cancers”

    – Seventieth World Health Assembly, 2017
  • “Cancer research to improve the evidence base for cancer prevention and control”

    – Seventieth World Health Assembly, 2017
  • CPE was established to develop world-class prevention research in Europe that can be translated into effective cancer prevention guidelines and policies

  • “The annual number of new cancers in Europe is projected to increase to 5.21 million by 2040, which corresponds to over 100 million new cancer patients in the next 20-25 years.”

  • 13th European Congress on Global Health, 20-23rd November – Utrecht, Netherlands

    The aim of ECTMIH 2023 is to accelerate the understanding, appreciation, and connections between tropical medicine, global health, and the urgent field of planetary health. It will build on global health traditions to emphasize the importance of health equity and universal health coverage to ensure that all populations – and especially those in low(er) resource settings – have optimal chances of health and wellbeing.

    Crosscutting themes supporting this central planetary health focus will include prevention, diagnostic innovation, treatment and care; public and community health; Universal Health Coverage and health equity; health policy and the role of social sciences in global health research.

    With this in mind, ECTMIH 2023 will:
    • act as a catalyst in the transition and change we need to achieve equitable, just, and sustainable societies
    • encourage the active participation of researchers from low and middle income countries, global thinkers, policy and decision makers
    • stimulate debate on the role of cooperation agencies and of scientific institutes in all areas of global health

    Dr Matta will be presenting an e-poster on Training health promoters on primary and secondary prevention of cancer through the Cancer Prevention Europe multilingual online programme: an impact evaluation
