At the forum, the “equals?” campaign was presented, to raise awareness among the society on the inequalities that cancer aggravates and the first report on inequity in Cancer in Spain with the aim of pointing out the inequalities that cancer aggravates, on the occasion of World Cancer Day, which is commemorated every February 4.

According to the published report, there are inequalities that have to do with access to healthy environments, early diagnosis, treatments such as psychological care and palliative care, and research, with the socio-economic aspect influencing inequalities. For example, the postal code affects more than the genetic code when it comes to dealing with cancer, so there is a part of the population that does not have the same opportunities to prevent and detect cancer early depending on where you live.

Today, seven Autonomous Communities have not managed to ensure that their entire population at risk (50 to 69 years old) has access to a colorectal screening program. In addition, 42% of the Communities do not have specific regulations to prevent tobacco smoke, which is responsible for 30% of cancer cases. It must be taken into account that almost 43% of children under 12 years of age are exposed to tobacco smoke in public spaces.

Regarding palliative care, Spain is at the bottom of the recommended ratios with 0.6 units per 100,000 inhabitants –according to the European Association of Palliative Care, for adequate care, 2 units are needed per 100,000 inhabitants, one home and one hospital -, the European average being 0.8 units per 100,000 inhabitants. In addition to raising awareness, this campaign aims to appeal to society through the Agreement Against Cancer to achieve goals that improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families.
