War On Cancer Middle East 2019



Care for all. How can a holistic, affordable and sustainable system provide care for all?

Cancer rates across the Middle East are expected to double between 2012 and 2030, according to World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates—the highest relative increase of any region globally. This rise is caused by a combination of environmental factors, lifestyle choices and increasing detection rates, but it is further driven by limited access to high-quality treatment and care. How can a holistic, affordable and sustainable system provide care for all?

Building on global dialogues at War on Cancer events in Europe, Latin America and Asia, War on Cancer: Middle East 2019 will advance the conversation by bringing together policymakers, industry leaders, health-care providers, insurers, investors, scientists, technologists and prominent thinkers to explore how a cancer-care pathway should be designed, funded and implemented across the Middle East. What needs to be done to improve prevention, screening, early detection and treatment, and how can policymakers and regulators educate the region’s population about healthy lifestyle choices? How can stakeholders ensure that care is not just for the wealthy, but accessible to all members of society?
