EuropaColon's Affiliate and Associate groups influence health policy, exchange and support of best practice, raised awareness and ultimately improvement of standards in the delivery of care and treatment.
We are proud of the progress EuropaColon's Affiliate and Associate groups have made during this time with patient meetings, media activity, political partnerships and gaining clinical support - galvanizing a colorectal cancer community both locally and across Europe. 'Read more about our Affiliates
