Equal Access to Cancer Treatments and Medical Investigations

Mr. Claudiu Ciprian Tănăsescu, Member of the European Parliament, in partnership with the European Development Platform and the Association of Pacients with Cancer organized the debate “Equal Access to Medical Treatment – Cancer Treatment and Medical Investigations”.
