ND leader Mitsotakis on World Cancer Day: ‘Cancer prevention is our priority’

Main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis presented on Monday New Democracry (ND) proposals on the fight against cancer, speaking at an event organised jointly by the GCS and the Ministry of Health on the occasion of World Cancer Day.

The state needs to develop a plan of action that will be centered on prevention, timely diagnosis, appropriate treatment and, most importantly, patient relief, Mitsotakis said, and listed ND’s five principal proposals, namely: fully implementing the smoking ban, ensuring faster procedures for screening, providing prompt access to radiation treatment, establishing specialised centres for cancer prevention and providing immediate access to medicine.

“Cancer prevention policies are our main priority,” Mitsotakis stated.
