Ending Tobacco epidemic – an essential step for beating cancer


In the framework set by Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, European public health community is joining forces towards one common cause that affects so many people in every European Member State. As tobacco use still continues being the leading preventable cause of cancer, ENSP aims to prioritise tobacco control on the health agenda; and will launch a targeted discussion on Tobacco and Cancer with the following key message: “Ending tobacco epidemic – an essential step for beating cancer”.  

To that end, on 24th February, at 16:00 CET, ENSP will host a webinar with key stakeholders in the field: the European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Ms. Stella Kyriakides and the WHO Representative to the European Union, Ms. Oxana Domenti, as well as the Minister of Health of Romania, Mr. Vlad Voiculescu, and representatives of major civil society organisations. 


The webinar will be hosted on 24th February 2021, at 16:00 CET. Save the date and register!
