We have a vision of transforming cancer from a deadly to a curable or chronic disease. Moving towards this vision requires innovative solutions and ways of working in several parts of society.
That is why we have established an innovation milieu, which inclusively engages partners from all sectors and disciplines to jointly create the long-term conditions necessary to achieve the vision. This innovation milieu is Vision Zero Cancer. We will be the catalyst in bringing together patient, healthcare, academia, industry and politics around the same vision.
Research and innovation must be more quickly integrated into healthcare to benefit patients and society. During the first two years, we focus primarily on lung cancer. Which is the most common cancer-related cause of death in the world. In Sweden, nearly 4,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer every year. Almost as many die. By improving lung cancer care, we can save many lives – and to improve lung cancer care, we need to work together.
