President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca met with representatives of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) in Belgium, including ECCO President Martine Piccart, CEO Michel Mallieu, and Head of Unit Davi Kaur.

ECCO provides a European platform for cancer organisations to work together to improve the outcomes of cancer patients and acts as a collective voice for European oncologists regarding issues of common policies. It is composed of 24 societies, representing a total of over 60,000 oncologists.

“While financial aid for cancer patients is improving, I would like all the stakeholders in Malta to come together with the aim of improving the services that are offered to patients suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses.”  

Piccart said that she wants to find out more about the present situation of cancer patients in Malta so that she can be able to help them in the best way possible.
