Today there are more opportunities than ever to survive and even recover from cancer. But the growing global incidence and prevalence put high demands on healthcare governance and prioritisation. How can we pave the way for more equitable access to diagnosis and treatment?

Uppsala Health Summit is an annual conference that gathers leaders from academia, industry, governments, civil society and healthcare. Together, the participants discuss practical solutions to unlock implementation challenges and help improve the utilisation of medical advancements globally.
