In this webinar, CCI Europe will present to the participants the upcoming 3-years global ICCD Campaign “Equal Access To Care” and will focus on how member organisations can actively contribute to year 1 of the campaign with the motto: “Unveiling Challenges”.
The Campaign Toolkit will be presented so that member organisations can share and promote the campaign in their countries. In year 1, everyone affected by childhood cancer is invited to go to the ICCD-platform and submit a digital postcard with the challenges and inequalities they face in their country related to childhood cancer. The postcard will then show up on an interactive, virtual world map. The objective for year 1 is to raise awareness about the global challenges and inequalities.
The aim of this Gold Webinar is to mobilize CCI Europe member organisations for broad and active participation in the campaign.
