Dutch Cancer Society
Beating cancer as soon as possible
The Dutch Cancer Society (DCS) is determined to beat cancer as soon as possible. That’s why we fund and guide scientific research, influence policy, and share our knowledge about cancer and its treatment. We encourage our stakeholders and the public to do everything possible to help bring about the day when no-one else has to die of cancer. We’re getting there together.
DCS is a nation-wide organization for cancer related work in the Netherlands.

We receive the majority of our income from private individuals: individual donors and contributions of individuals during actions and events.
DCS has the ambition to fast track results from scientific research to practical applications. To ensure this, we have launched the Programme Research & Implementation (PR&I): a new way of funding, reviewing and cooperating. We make it possible, will you make it a reality?
‘Less cancer’ is one of our goals. Empowering people to make the right choices is what we stand for. DCS invests in informing the public about a healthy lifestyle. We offer information and several tools to support the public in realizing a healthy lifestyle.
Let's talk access
In this White Paper, the ECL Access to Medicines Task Force elaborates on the most important challenges in access to medicines and suggest solutions for decision-makers in four areas: disparities in availability of cancer treatments, high prices of cancer treatments, regulatory and systemic issues and flawed innovation models.
