ECIR – European Cancer Inequalities Registry
The European Cancer Inequalities Registry is a flagship initiative of Europe's Beating Cancer Plan. It provides sound and reliable data on cancer prevention and care to identify trends, disparities and inequalities between Member States and regions

Country Cancer Profiles

The Country Cancer Profiles aim to identify inequalities in cancer prevention and care for each EU Member State, Norway and Iceland.

They shed light on key achievements, challenges and disparities within each country and compared to the EU as a whole. This can support policymakers and help guide investment and interventions at regional, national and EU level under Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
