ECO-ASCO Special Network
on the Impact of the War in Ukraine on Cancer
European Cancer Organisation

Following discussions with the WHO, EU Commission and the new ASCO-ECO Ukraine Steering Committee last week, the ECO Board has just decided to create a new Special Network on the Impact of the War in Ukraine on Cancer, together with ASCO.

The Special Network is addressing a large number of challenges currently being faced by Ukrainian cancer patients and those treating and supporting them, including those that have been shared with ASCO and ECO already:

  • Lack of data/medical records
  • Language barriers
  • Access to information about treatment and support options in the patient's new country in relevant languages
  • Capacity issues within neighbouring countries
  • Lack of resources for cancer organisations within neighbouring countries
  • Need for connectivity to other European countries – for their capacity to support
  • Need for co-ordination to address medicine shortages
  • GDPR restrictions on patient information

Please visit: for detailed information.


In light of recent events, the European Head and Neck Society (EHNS) would like to express its deep concern for the Ukraine people. EHNS is a society without borders devoted to international exchange in science and education. Open dialogue and communication are essential for progress in head and neck oncology and for improving the outlook of patients with head and neck cancer. Therefore, EHNS strongly stands in solidarity with our Ukrainian colleagues and the Ukrainian people during this most difficult time. War is never a solution and the true victims are always the people and the patients.
