Last 18th January 2022, Cittadinanzattiva presented the document "Together for oncology: with feet on the ground and a look into the future", with the support of Novartis and realized thanks to the contribution of about 60 experts, including representatives of institutions, of universities, of the research field, of civic and patient organizations, and of the private sector. To guide the work was also the European Plan against Cancer, built on four pillars (Prevention, Early Diagnosis, Treatment and Quality of Life) and the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP), which focuses on innovation, digital health, proximity care, social inclusion, management of chronicity. The document aims to draw a long-term strategic vision in the fight against cancer in our country, with the aim of delivering the proposals to the main decision-makers currently engaged in the construction of the new National Oncology Plan. At the center of the debate is the reflection on the Covid-19 pandemic situation and the emergency of suspended or cancelled ordinary treatments due to Covid. Among the proposals contained in the document: realizing screening and vaccines in the places closest to the citizens, implementing cancer registries in all regions, building a national portal of innovation, promoting the law on the right to oblivion.
