Abstract: Adopted in February 2021, the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan proposes actions across the four steps of the cancer pathway (prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and quality of life of cancer patients and survivors) and three cross-cutting themes (research and innovation, inequalities, and paediatric cancers). The purpose of the study is to support the review of the Europe Beating Cancer Plan, planned by the end of 2024. The tasks include a future proofing analysis, country analysis, an evaluation of progress of actions funded under the EU4Health programme, the development of a monitoring framework, focus groups and workshops.
