The Lung Cancer Policy Network is a global alliance of almost 50 world-renowned experts in lung cancer and cancer screening, with the goal of making lung cancer a policy priority worldwide. The Network’s website has now launched, and we are pleased to say that Ebba Hallersjö Hult from Vision Zero Cancer is a member.
There is compelling evidence that implementing targeted screening programmes can transform lung cancer from a fatal to a treatable disease, and dramatically improve quality of life for people with lung cancer. The initial focus of the Network is to promote the adoption of screening to increase early detection and diagnosis of lung cancer.
Members of the Network include clinicians, researchers, patient organisations and advocates, and industry experts. All members share their knowledge and expertise, which feeds into an evidence base to encourage policymakers to make lung cancer a health policy priority worldwide. The Network will soon launch its inaugural report, outlining key lessons learnt from the implementation of lung cancer screening around the world, as well as an online map tracking the progress of lung cancer screening globally.
