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”
“Cancer research to improve the evidence base for cancer prevention and control”
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.”
