ESTRO Cancer Foundation

 

ESTRO’s new Vision statement aims at improving the role and perception of radiation oncology as a promising and more economical contributor to the treatment of cancer:

Every cancer patient in Europe will have access to state of the art radiation therapy, as part of a multidisciplinary approach where treatment is individualised for the specific patient’s cancer, taking into account the patient’s personal circumstances.

The ESTRO Cancer Foundation (ECF) was launched in 2012 to explicitly promote radiation oncology to target audiences such as patients & decision makers. The Foundation can be regarded as the ESTRO arm that tangibly enforces its Vision statement on the ground.
