Launch of Cancer Prevention Europe website

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to announce the launch of the Cancer Prevention Europe (CPE) website. CPE, a consortium of organizations across the whole of Europe, aims to reduce morbidity and mortality from cancer in European populations through prevention and earlier diagnosis of the disease.

Recent estimates suggest that about 40% of cancers in Europe could be prevented if the current understanding of established risk factors and protective factors was translated into effective primary prevention. Cancer screening and other approaches to early detection of premalignant lesions can also contribute to reduce cancer incidence and mortality.
