"Even today, despite the huge progress in medicine, people with a history of cancer face social and economic challenges and discrimination," said Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides ahead of her visit to Cyprus on 7 and 8 October, where she will participate, among other things, in Europa Donna Cyprus' "March with Pink Figures", which this year is under the auspices of Europa Donna Cyprus.

Kyriakides invited people to join the march on Saturday 8 October, to "join us, walk with us and claim the Right to Oblivion for all cancer patients".

"With resolute determination and optimism we are launching a single EU-wide process for equal access to financial products for people with a history of cancer in all Member States, as we committed to in the European Cancer Plan," she added.

On Friday 7 October, the Commissioner will address a conference organized by the Ministry of Health at St Raphael's Hotel in Limassol, entitled "COVID-19: the path after the pandemic", at the invitation of the Minister of Health Michael Hadjipandela.

Ms. Kyriakides will then visit the German Oncology Centre in Agios Athanasios, Limassol.
