The Cancer Mission  aims to improve the lives of more than three million people living with  cancer by 2030 through prevention and cure, enabling those affected by  cancer to live longer and better while supporting their families. By joining efforts across Europe , the Mission  together with Europe's   Beating cancer Plan will prevent cancer cases, allow for earlier diagnosis, reduce suffering and improve cancer patients' quality of life during and after cancer treatment, while ensuring equitable access to these outcomes across Europe.

The mission will address all cancers including poorly understood cancers in men and women, cancers in children, adolescents/young adults and the elderly,  cancers in socio-economically vulnerable people, living in either cities, rural or remote areas, across all Member States and Associated countries.

The mission proposes research and policy directions and objectives to identify effective strategies for the development and implementation of  cancer  prevention, including on environmental factors, such as exposure to workplace carcinogens, air pollution, unhealthy diet, nutrition and low physical activity.
