Thomas Hofmarcher: A press briefing event on the eve of the 5th hashtag European Cancer Forum

Thomas Hofmarcher, Research Director of the Swedish Institute for Health Economics, shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Very good read about a press briefing event on the eve of the 5th European Cancer Forum. I’m featured with the following quote (using Google Translate):

I was born in Austria, near Vienna. You could say that I was lucky, because if I had been born 100 km away, e.g. in Bratislava, Slovakia, and gotten cancer there, I would have had much worse treatment options than in Austria.

If you are a patient in Romania or Portugal and you ask your treating physician: what are my chances of survival with breast cancer, the physician will not be able to answer precisely. These countries do not collect such statistics. Although Portugal, for example, maintains a national cancer registry, the survival rate is still not measured there, emphasized T. Hofmarcher.”
