BRATISLAVA hosts the meeting of the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL) that takes place between October 14 and 17. The members of the leagues and various experts are expected to discuss the prevention of cancer and new approaches to its treatment, the press release sent to The Slovak Spectator reads.

Alongside the meeting, there will also be a working group for supporting patients. One of the discussed topics will be the rehabilitation of patients, the access of oncologic patients to insurance and palliative care, according to the press release.

The League against Cancer in Slovakia was founded in 1990 and in the same year it joined the Association of European Cancer Leagues and the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).

The ECL unites organisations from 21 European countries, plus Turkey and Faroe Islands. Its main aim is to be a visible and effective player in the fight against cancer, which includes spreading information about the disease to the public. The communication between all member states is currently very active, which helps indentify and establish joint strategy in fighting cancer, the press release reads.

The ECL has an important role, especially in consulting.
