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.

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. ​
