ABPI welcomes Northern Ireland Cancer Strategy

A 10-year cancer strategy for Northern Ireland is published, looking at prevention, diagnosis and treatment, supporting people to live and die well, and implementing the strategy. 

We reiterate our commitment to partner and drive the actions identified in the Strategy, so that over the next decade it can be implemented in full. Marion Laverty, Public Affairs Manager for ABPI Northern Ireland

Responding to the Strategy, Marion Laverty, Public Affairs Manager for ABPI Northern Ireland said: 

“ABPI NI welcomes the launch of this Cancer Strategy, an ambitious ten-year vision that will provide the framework to improve all aspects of cancer care in Northern Ireland.

“We particularly welcome the actions identified around data analysis, research and awareness as these will be key to improving cancer outcomes across the local healthcare system, reducing health inequalities and ensuing equitable access to innovative treatments and care.

“We reiterate our commitment to partner and drive the actions identified in the Strategy, so that over the next decade it can be implemented in full.”
