Innovate health systems, change lives

If more people are going to survive cancer, the healthcare systems need a transformation.

What we want to innovate

No one should have to die of cancer

We are going to transform cancer from a deadly to a curable or chronic disease. But there is no single answer as to how. What we do know is that no one can do it on their own. And that we need to think in new ways.

Vision Zero Cancer challenges the prevailing ecosystem and connects new ones. We want to engage the whole community, from healthy citizens, patients and their families to healthcare, academia, industry and policy, to create value in Sweden and globally.

The aim of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan is to tackle the entire disease pathway. Over the coming years, it will focus on research and innovation, tap into the potential that digitalisation and new technologies offer, and mobilise financial instruments to support Member States. With its policy objectives, supported by ten flagship initiatives and multiple supporting actions, the Cancer Plan will help Member States turn the tide against cancer. Sweden and Estonia have decided to join forces in this endeavour.

Knowledge and experience exchange with Sweden: Early detection of lung cancer in never-smokers

Lung cancer accounts for one in five deaths worldwide. The past few years have seen considerable advances in treatment for lung cancer, yet the prognosis remains low. Lung cancer causes symptoms that come up late in the course of the disease and assessments are complicated. This means that half of the patients have a spread disease at diagnosis.

Become a part of the innovation

Our goal is to make Sweden a world leader in preventing, detecting, diagnosing, treating and organizing around cancer. Do you have ideas on how?

We welcome more stakeholders to engage in Vision Zero Cancer, through collaborations in specific actions and through partnerships. Together we can create even greater benefit for patients and society, in Sweden and globally.
