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.”
