Advocacy and Research to Improve Survival
The UK has one of the worst survival rates for ovarian cancer in Europe – a survival rate that has not improved for 30 years. In comparison breast cancer survival has increased from 50% to 80%.
To help improve survival, Target Ovarian Cancer is creating a national grassroots advocacy and research programme for ovarian cancer. This will ensure that the interests of women with ovarian cancer are communicated to all those responsible for setting priorities in healthcare and public policy. We want women’s views to be central to driving improvements towards a longer and better life.
