You Are Invited to Attend a Round Table Discussion on Cancer-Associated Thrombosis and the EU Cancer Agenda


This Event is in Recognition of World Thrombosis Day


MEP Juozas Olekas and the European Thrombosis and Haemostasis Alliance (ETHA) are delighted to invite you to a roundtable discussion on Cancer-Associated Thrombosis and the EU Cancer Agenda 2019 – 2024 in recognition of the sixth annual World Thrombosis Day (WTD) campaign.

As a strong risk factor for developing blood clots, research indicates that cancer patients have a four-times higher risk than the general population of developing a clot. Blood clots are a serious complication of cancer with cancer-associated thrombosis as the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in cancer patients.

Through Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan envisaged by Commission President-elect von der Leyen, the European Union has made the fight against cancer a top priority. According to the Mission Letter to Health-Commissioner designate Stella Kyriakides, Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan is intended to have actions at every stage of the disease: prevention, diagnosis, treatment, life as a cancer survivor and palliative care.

Stronger EU cooperation is essential to tackle cancer given the significant impact of this disease, especially against wider trends such as rising cancer prevalence and increasing demand for healthcare services due to ageing populations. However, when developing the target areas for Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, we can’t lose sight of the central goals of improving overall cancer survival rates and concurrently decreasing use of healthcare resources. Improvements at every stage of the disease, from early intervention to better treatment and outcomes, can best be safeguarded by addressing risk factors which affect mortality from all cancers, like cancer-associated thrombosis.
