ECPC launches a new website


18 Feb 2020



Today, the European Cancer Patient Coalition has launched a new website with a completely new design and structure to improve user experience. Through this online platform, ECPC wants to maintain the ongoing mission to serve cancer patient organisations all over Europe and beyond.

“We completely changed our approach. When you search through the website now, you will see that a cancer patient is really the centre of our focus. We rewrote the information of all activities we were, or are involved in, to explain why they are relevant for the cancer patient community. Now more than ever, ECPC’s role in projects is visible, how we contributed to European policy and research, and what we have achieved,” explains Antonella Cardone, ECPC director.

Through advocacy activities, fundraising and campaigns, we offer a unique doorway to a vast array of opportunities at a European level. However, the ECPC website does not just display what is going on at the European level, it also provides members with practical tools such as a HTA e-learning module, high-quality educational material and translations of this material on crucial topics like nutrition, survivorship and self-care.

“The last year was a year of changes for ECPC. We have a new President, a new Board, a new Director, a new logo and with the website we finalise this process. The new website was a priority for the Board, as we believe the website will strengthen our organisations’ capacity- building and increase the connections between us and our members,” said Kathi Apostolidis, ECPC President.

This year, cancer became a priority on the European health and research agenda. We need more than ever to unite the voices of cancer patients across Europe and we are delighted to launch the website at this crucial moment.
