Study Highlights Inequalities of Cancer Care in Europe


Nils Wilking and Bengt Jonsson's follow on from their studies in 2005 and 2007 has shown the same result: access to modern cancer treatments differs greatly from country to country. The report has shown that the broadest access to new treatments are found in Austria, France and Switzerland while Poland, the Czech Republic and Britain are trailing behind.

The study was financed by an unrestricted grant from European drugmakers who have long protested these inequalities and restrictions in accessing expensive new cancer drugs.
