Better Funding for Research into Blood Diseases Will Save More Lives
Date:8/31/2011

research in haematology, allowing haematologists to secure the research resources they need to help patients access the best possible expertise and treatment. The conference therefore aims to create grass-roots momentum for collaboration by all stake-holders at European, national and regional level to ensure this happens.

This is why initiatives like the Brussels conference, organised jointly by the European Cancer Patient Coalition and the European Hematology Association, the haematologists' organisation, are crucial for raising awareness in the wider public, but also for sending a clear message to regulators, administrators, officials and MEPs that their voice needs to be heard.    

Editor's Notes:

The European Hematology Association is an NGO that promotes excellence in clinical practice, research and education in European haematology. EHA is the representative of haematology and haematologists in Europe (members: 3,000+; annual congress attendance: +/-9,000 haematologists; Haematologica/The Haematology Journal: the primary general haematology journal in Europe). Further information can be found at http://www.ehaweb.org

The European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) was founded in 2003 under the slogan "Nothing About Us, Without Us". It is committed to improving cancer prevention, screening, early diagnosis and best treatment, reducing disparity and inequality across the EU. ECPC seeks to ensure that policy makers, politicians, health professionals, the media and the general public recognise the serious nature of cancer and the need for concerted action to reduce unnecessary death and suffering. Further information can be found at http://www.ecpc-online.org
