The ‘European Network to reduce vulnerabilities in health’ was founded in 2015 with NGOs and academic partners from 19 European countries. Our goal is to contribute to decreased EU-wide health inequalities and to more responsive health systems that are better equipped to deal with vulnerability factors. By collecting robust, comparative routine data (quantitative and qualitative) we aim to improve the quality of service delivery and build a solid evidence base for advocacy for people facing vulnerabilities. If this application is successful, we expect to integrate five new member organisations into the Network. The creation of the Network has been welcomed by its members, who confirmed the relevance to their everyday work and the added value of exchanges in the four strategic objectives: mutual learning, empowerment, data collection and advocacy. In addition to the data collection, analysis of legal frameworks in different countries, workshops and training activities, in 2016, we will begin peer reviews to allow members to directly experience different modes of providing health and care services. The Network will continue the process of rigorous data collection and analysis with specific support being provided by the Network secretariat to the five members that expect to start collecting data for the first time in 2016. The Network invites academics to independently review the data and understand how vulnerabilities contribute to health inequalities. The Network also engages with European institutions and stakeholders. Given the unprecedented economic crisis and the unpredictable, fast-changing refugee situation, and the fact that our members are in the front line in responding to their humanitarian needs, the Network may need to re-prioritize its mutual learning goals in the coming months.

Cancer Leagues Collaborating in Cancer Prevention and Control at the National and European Level [ECL SGA 2016]

The Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL) is an NGO leading on cancer control actions at the European level since 1980. Represented by members in the EU and non-EU countries at the national level, leagues are often the main resource for the public for cancer control information and services. ECL provides a unique platform for cancer leagues to share specific know-how and experiences and is the only network in existence exclusively for cancer leagues. The running of ECL has been mainly financed by fees from its members, which cover a skeleton staff and office expenses. Prior to receiving co-funding in 2015 in the form of an Operating Grant from the EU, ECL's main source of income was membership fees, rates which have not changed for 10 years, but due to times of austerity, ECL has been unable to justify increasing the fees. ECL applied for an Operating Grant in 2014 to increase its resources in order to be able to implement actions efficiently in line with its renewed strategy 2014-2017. In 2015, the EU co-funding allowed us to increase our activities in the implementation of work for Strategic Goal 2: Promote Cancer Prevention. The grant has enabled ECL to increase our work in cancer prevention, and specifically in communicating the new 4th revision of the European Code Against Cancer in 2015, activities which included confirming translations of the Code, encouraging our members to communicate the Code, targeting young adults and incorporating the messages in all our activities including work at the European Parliament. In 2016 we will continue and expand these efforts with the Code as well as continue our normal and important activities such as tobacco control and patient support, while increasing our work at the national levels with our member leagues and other partners, which will include to a limited extent global partners during the World Cancer Congress in October 2016 in Paris.
