MISSION:EUROPA DONNA -The EU Breast Cancer Coalition (ED) is an independent, non-profit pan-EU coalition of affiliated grassroots groups whose mission is to ensure that all women have access to accurate information and the highest quality breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. We are widely recognised to be Europe`s breast cancer (BC) advocacy organisation, with 18 years experience advocating for evidence-based best practice breast services.
VISION: ED provides critically important advocacy, education and information with the aim of:
- greatly INCREASING EARLY DETECTION and thereby drastically DECREASING MORTALITY resulting from BC
- bringing QUALITY OF TREATMENT to the highest level for ALL women suffering from BC and thereby DECREASING MORTALITY resulting from the disease
- increasing PREVENTION, by promoting and educating all EU women about healthy lifestyle practices
ED`s general objectives are its Ten Goals, which are based on the aims enshrined in its Constitution. We seek: to promote the dissemination and exchange of factual, up-to-date information on BC throughout Europe; to promote breast awareness; to emphasise the need for appropriate screening and early detection; to campaign for the provision of optimum treatment; to ensure provision of quality supportive care throughout and after treatment; to advocate appropriate training for health professionals; to acknowledge good practice and promote its development; to demand regular quality assessment of medical equipment; to ensure that all women understand fully any proposed treatment options, including entry into clinical trials and their right to a second opinion; to promote the advancement of BC research.
VALUES: ED provides women in member countries with scientifically proven information, evidence-based education and tools, a strong sense of cross-border solidarity and the collective power necessary to bring about positive change on the large-scale while reducing inequalities between countries.
The above are communicated to stakeholders on ED websites, publications and at events.
