Online exhibition linked to this seminar: The people behind the numbers: women with breast cancer.
VENUSCANCER is a world-wide project designed to explain the global inequalities in patterns of care, short-term survival and trends in avoidable premature deaths from breast, cervical and ovarian cancers, the three most common cancers in women. The goal of this project, funded by the European Research Council, is to provide levers for health policy to reduce or eliminate avoidable differences in survival from these cancers. Results from this large study will be presented during this seminar.
