iPAAC partner FISABIO (Fundació per al Foment de la Investigació Sanitaria I Biomèdica de la Comunitat Valenciana) launched in 2019 a Contest of Best Practices tackling social inequalities in cancer prevention, including both health promotion and cancer screening programmes.

The aim of this contest being to:

  • Identify and compile relevant European experiences,
  • Disseminate them among European countries in order to promote and facilitate their implementation in different health systems and services,
  • Contribute to the exchange and replication of best practices on equality in cancer prevention.

This initiative adds to the efforts undertaken by the European Commission in preventing and managing non-communicable diseases through a good-practice-sharing approach, focusing exclusively and specifically on cancer prevention and screening, from the perspective of social inequalities.
