Visit of Stella Kyriakides, European Commissioner, to Cyprus

More specifically, according to the schedule, on Friday 11 November, at 09:30 Cyprus time, the Commissioner will deliver the keynote speech at the conference of the Cyprus Association of Research and Development Pharmaceutical Companies (KEFEA) and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) entitled: “A New Era for Health Care in Cyprus: Embrace, Evaluate, Evolve”. The Commissioner will then visit the Karaiskakio Foundation in Nicosia at 10:30 Cyprus time. Later in the afternoon she will go to Limassol, where at 19:25 Cyprus time she will deliver the opening speech at the 4th Cyprus Oncology Conference entitled “Making progress in Cancer Care with Research Innovation and Multidisciplinary Collaboration”. 

On Monday 14 November, at 09:30 Cyprus time, the Commissioner will deliver a speech entitled “Let’s talk about equality, quality and innovation in cancer care” at the 42nd Annual Conference of the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL).

On the occasion of her visit to Cyprus, the Commissioner said: “In Europe, around 2.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year – and this number is expected to increase by 25 % by 2035. We know that, due to the pandemic, millions of cancer patients have not had adequate access to screening in recent years, which has led to late diagnoses. Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, which is currently being implemented in close cooperation with all stakeholders, can bring real change and improve the lives of patients and their families.”
