As a public health organisation operating in the WHO European region, ECL is greatly saddened and deeply concerned about the escalating conflict in Ukraine and the impact that this is having on civilians, healthcare professionals, aid workers and their health.
We are utterly shocked and appeal for a speedy and peaceful end to hostilities. Our thoughts are with all those directly affected. We stand in solidarity with all those who are working tirelessly on the ground to help others in need.
The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is heavily impacting people with health issues and cancer patients. Many Ukrainian people living with cancer have to leave hospitals and their homes, and therefore no longer have access to treatment. Lack of access to care is putting many lives at risk.
This page features resources and announcements from cancer leagues within ECL’s membership and network of partners and collaborators and will be regularly updated as we receive more resources.
