Eurasia and Baltic Region programme

Coordinators: Fedro A. Peccatori, IT - Maria Del Grande, CH

The Eurasia Programme represents a challenging initiative that aims to create a specific programme for Baltic and Eurasian countries. In these areas particular attention is given to the selection of priorities that correspond to the specific need of each of the countries and of the societies involved.
The main aim is to focus and to organise teaching educational courses on cancer types which are considered a priority issue for the population of each country, and to convene participants from all these countries and address of a variety of medical communities including specialised doctors, nurses, as well as hospital managers and administrators. An investment in organising educational activities that take into consideration epidemiology, prevention, early detection and treatment can strongly reduce mortality in cancer and cancer related diseases.
The Eurasia Programme intends to be a centre of diffusion for the expertise and latest knowledge in the field of cancer prevention and cure throughout the Eurasian countries, developing a web of scientific relationships and collaborations between cancer specialists in Europe and Asian countries.

The European School of Oncology wishes to express its gratitude to the ESO Ambassadors who have committed themselves to help promote the school’s activities in their respective country.
