About War on Cancer Middle East 2018:

In 2015, The Economist Events declared war on cancer at an inaugural summit in London. Since then, we have taken the conversation from Boston to Hong Kong, Singapore to Oslo, to explore the most pressing issues in policy and financing, treatment and care across the globe. Bringing together a diverse audience from the policy, finance, and medical communities, our aim has been to share best practice and to catalyse action; breaking down silos to confront the enormous challenge cancer presents. War on Cancer Middle East 2018 aims to explore the state of cancer care in the region, sharing and comparing different approaches as well as exchanging insights from the region and the rest of the world. Through robust panel debates, case studies, and strategy sessions, we will explore the evolving policy solutions to the increase in cancer incidence, as well as the innovative financing models that can bridge the funding gap for treatment.
