European Cancer Health Indicator Project

The DG Sanco funded EUROCHIP projects focus on fighting inequalities in cancer by improving information and knowledge on cancer using the unique tools of comparison and solidarity in the EU27.

EUROCHIP-1 (2001-2003) delivered the list of Cancer Health Indicators for the cancer domains of Prevention, Screening, and Care. EUROCHIP-2 “the Action” acted as a network of networks, agencies, institutions, policy makers, medical associations and patients groups, to promote actions aimed at reducing inequality gaps in cancer information across the EU, aiming towards a European Cancer Health Information system. With EUROCHIP-3 “Common Action” the network takes EU cancer information one step forward and it investigates 4 cancer information areas (i.e. cervical cancer screening in Eastern Europe, EU cancer registration, information on survivorship, information on cancer costs & outcome) that are binding for the cancer control strategy of the EU as a whole.


The project concluded on 29 February 2012. Final report is available here.
