EUROPA DONNA - The European Breast Cancer Coalition
Patients’ needs and quality of life are in the heart of BIG’s activities. BIG has built a close collaboration with Europa Donna and other patient advocates to better understand patients’ needs and ensure that BIG’s work stays relevant and ethical.
EUROPA DONNA is an independent non-profit organisation whose members are affiliated groups from countries throughout Europe. It was founded in 1994 and now has 46 fora (national country organisations) across Europe. The Coalition works to raise awareness of breast cancer and to mobilise the support of European women in pressing for improved breast cancer education, appropriate screening, optimal treatment and increased funding for research. EUROPA DONNA represents the interests of European women regarding breast cancer to local and national authorities as well as to institutions of the European Union.
