The initiative will focus on strengthening patient group activities to support and advocate improved outcomes for gynaecological cancers. The objective of this initiative is to engage cancer patient groups in a collaborative effort to reverse the situation and to help overcome barriers.
The emphasis is on sharing and exchange between gynaecological cancer patient groups in Europe and internationally; to spearhead collaboration in new initiatives and strengthen existing ones, while avoiding duplicate efforts.
There were two grants awarded in 2013 to the following organisations:
