International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD 2015)

European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium
Hosted by MEP Glenis Willmott
Every year SIOPE marks the important date of International Childhood Cancer Day (15th February) by organising an influential event at the European Parliament.
The event aims to raise awareness on the challenges
faced by children and adolescents with cancer and those who take care
of them, and to advocate better health and research legislation from
European policy-makers in light of the most recent regulatory
developments, such as the Data Protection Regulation.
Hosted by our valued long-standing supporter, Member of the European Parliament Ms. Glenis Willmott, this year’s event will address the topical issues on increasing
the cure rate and the quality of cure of children and adolescents with
cancer, the main goals of the SIOPE society for the next decade, and how

community are taken into account by European policies and legislation.
We anticipate a lively and forward-looking discussion on how to
improve clinical research and care for children and adolescents in
