Europe: Elena Kountoura- Member of the European Parliament, delivered a keynote address at the 7th Cancer Conference, where she stressed equal access for all citizens to optimal cancer treatment services. 

She also gave an update on the role of the European Parliament in ensuring the implementation of its ambitious cancer policy in the EU.

“We must expedite Europe and nationally for equal access for all citizens to optimal cancer treatment services: from prevention and routine checkpoints to early treatment and treatment.

She stated that she was the guest speaker at the 7th Cancer Conference, where she updated on the role of the European Parliament in ensuring the implementation of its ambitious cancer policy in the EU.

MEP Kountoura noted that they must, Europeanly and nationally, speed up the equal access of all citizens to optimal cancer treatment services: from prevention and regular check-ups to early treatment and treatment. 

“There is today a very large gap between the centre of Europe and the European region – especially the island region – that needs to be bridged, at least in terms of connectivity and a green transition, in terms of sustainability.”

The need for comprehensive planning and sufficient funding for TENT’s iconic transport projects in Europe to address current inequalities and spread benefits in all regions, e.g. she was a guest speaker at the 50th General Assembly of Coastal and Remote Regions CPMR 2022, which took place in Saint Nicholas of Crete.

The transition to green mobility must be done in a socially fair way and affordable cost for our most vulnerable fellow citizens,” she emphasized in her intervention in the European Parliament’s TRAN committee in the relevant debate. 

“The Commission must systematically integrate the gender dimension into its future transport policies. Otherwise, we will repeat the same problems and the same demands without improving the situation for European women”. 

The challenges that women face in the transport sector, she highlighted in my intervention at TRAN in the context of the European Week for Gender Equality.
