Working with Maltese organisations to make Cancer a European priority
During the past weeks, I had the opportunity to meet various stakeholders working in the field of cancer including organisations, researchers and health professionals to discuss a paper being proposed in the European Parliament on Cancer. “The EU must take its responsibility to fight against cancer” is being proposed by the EPP Group of which I am a member of and I am making sure to add the views and proposals of Maltese stakeholders on how we can fight cancer.
Over the past months, I also had the opportunity to invite local stakeholders including representatives from Hospice Malta, Europa Donna Malta, Karl Vella Foundation, Action for Breast Cancer and Malta Health Network to join me at the European Parliament to further to discuss how we can further help cancer patients and their families.
I have also joined the MEPs against Cancer working group at the European Parliament.
