International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD 2021)

Action to Improve Access to Medicines for Paediatric Cancers in Europe: 
Eradicating inequalities and addressing unmet needs

Wednesday 3 February 2021 (11:00 to 13:00 CET) 
Virtual Event

Hosted by MEP Loucas Fourlas (EPP, Cyprus)




SIOP Europe will once again mark International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD, 15 February each year) through an event that is this year hosted by MEP Loucas Fourlas on 3 February 2021. 

ICCD normally takes place at the European Parliament in Brussels but the upcoming edition will exceptionally come to you in an interactive virtual format.

More than 35,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer and 6,000 young lives are lost every year, making paediatric cancer a major public health and societal issue in Europe.

The European paediatric haemato-oncology community, including parent, patient, and survivor representatives, invites EU decision-makers and partner stakeholders to sustain and reinforce support of the paediatric cancer cause. 


Registration deadline: 15 January 2021
