Uniting Voices for Action on Women Cancer in the EMR

May 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Hosted by The Eastern Mediterranean NCD Alliance (EM-NCDA), this convening aims to spotlight women’s cancers, leverage collective efforts to steer discussions towards actionable outcomes, and advocate for gender-sensitive approaches in closing the gap between policy development and implementation in the EMR.

Drawing upon the IHE-IAPO Breast Cancer Report and the Lancet Commission on Women, Power, and Cancer, this gathering also aims to galvanize the EMR political commitment and cooperation in ensuring women’s cancer remains a central focus on the agenda of the upcoming UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs in 2025.

Join us on the sidelines of the 77th World Health Assembly, as we gather global health leaders, policy makers, and civil society representatives to advance the agenda on women’s cancer in the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR).

Refreshments will be available before the side-event, and dinner will be served to all guests at the same venue following the closing remarks.
