WOF 2 - Treat the Treatable
The Second World Oncology Forum convened in Lugano in October 2014. The task of the 35 invited participants was to spell out in greater detail what governments, policy makers and international agencies need to do in order to deliver on two key policy areas that were defined in the Stop Cancer Now! appeal, launched by the first World Oncology Forum two years previously.

Accelerate progress towards a cure
During the first day of the programme, participants focused on defining the changes that are needed to the whole ecosystem for developing and evaluating new therapies, in order to remove obstacles to the sort of innovative collaborative research that can deliver faster progress towards cures or long-term control of cancers.

Treat the treatable
During the second day, they focused on what governments, policy makers and international agencies need to do to ensure everyone who needs it has access to effective early detection, treatment and care services, drawing on the lessons of recent success stories such as Thailand and Brazil.

The discussions formed the basis of two appeals, Treat the Treatable and Speed up progress towards a cure. WOF chair Franco Cavalli will be seeking support for the key points in both these appeals at the World Economic Forum 2015, where cancer will be on the agenda for the first time.
