The European Partnership for Action Against Cancer (EPAAC) was launched in 2009, after the European Commission published its Communication on Action Against Cancer: European Partnership.

The specificity of the Partnership is that it brings together the efforts of different stakeholders into a joint response to prevent and control cancer. In its initial phase, until early 2014, the work of the Partnership will be taken forward through a Joint Action (cofinanced by the EU Health Programme).

The specificity of the Partnership is that it brings together the efforts of different stakeholders into a joint response to prevent and control cancer. The National Institute of Public Health in Slovenia has assumed the role of leader of the EPAAC Joint Action, which encompasses 36 associated partners from across Europe and over 100 collaborating partners.

In March 2014, the Joint Action was concluded. Its work will be upheld by a second Joint Action on Cancer Control - CANCON.
