Lung Cancer: A World View – 2022
A GLCC project to understand the campaigning priorities in lung cancer at a national level
The GLCC serves as the international voice of people affected by lung cancer. Member organisations have a key focus on lung cancer advocacy, and an important function of the GLCC is bringing members together to converse and exchange ideas.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GLCC has been unable to hold a face-to-face meeting for the past two years, and valuable opportunities to exchange information have been lost. The GLCC Lung Cancer: A World View project was initiated to enable members to share their current campaigning priorities and the issues that are most relevant to the patients they represent.
The project consisted of a series of online workshops that gathered insights from a total of twenty-two individuals from twenty-one different member organisations.
The three key themes explored during the workshops were:
1. Access to diagnostics and treatments
3. Recovery of services post-COVID-19
