Abstract

The noted economist Stiglitz1 commented that inequality is a choice. Inequality comes from the policy decisions systems make. The European Cancer Organisation (ECO) considers this dictum applies to the prevalence of inequalities in cancer care. In 2020, ECO members chose to take action on inequalities by establishing a Focused Topic Network dedicated to advocating on the topic.2

The Network is co-chaired by Nicolò Matteo Luca Battisti (International Society of Geriatric Oncology) and Hendrik Van Poppel (European Association of Urology). More than 30 organizations participate including 15 European and international level health care professional organizations, nine patient organizations, five charities and foundations, and other invited stakeholders.
