Cancer Policy Support
The European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC), in cooperation with the European Commission Directorate-General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) and stakeholders in the Member States, will help coordinate and improve cancer prevention, control and care processes across the EU via the standardisation and harmonisation of good practices.
Short-term priorities include:
the establishment of the first EU voluntary accreditation scheme for breast cancer services together with the revision of the breast cancer screening guidelines;
the establishment of a cancer information system in the EU.
