The UK Economist 2019 cancer summit will take place in London this week. This is the fourth edition of the events’ series of cancer summits organized by the British media in Europe and will look to solutions, not problems. It will build on the findings of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s recently released Index of Cancer Preparedness and explore examples and case studies from programmes that have navigated the complexities to genuinely “move the needle” on cancer control.

Key speakers at the event will be leading figures and cancer control advocates who will share their vision to celebrate the successes in areas of policy, regulation, investment, partnerships, systems and technology which have led to better outcomes for patients. These examples would be discussed to clarify how to build on this progress.
