MEPs Against Cancer is a group of 43 Members of the European Parliament who aim to "promot[e] action on cancer as an EU priority and [harness] European health policy to that end" and to encourage every country to develop a national plan for combating cancer.[1][2] It is chaired by Slovenian representative Alojz Peterle and British Liberal Democrat MEP for the West Midlands Liz Lynne, who founded the group alongside Cypriot former MEP Adamos Adamou.[3][4] It held an event called "Europe in Wide Screen" in early 2008 discussing European cancer programmes, and held its first conference on 22 March 2008 at the European Parliament in Brussels.[1][4]
