The interregional public movement "Movement against cancer" was created by cancer patients, their families and physicians, with the support of the non-profit partnership "Equal Right to Life" to draw attention of public and authorities to the problem of access to innovative treatments for cancer in the Russian Federation inform the public about modern and effective means of diagnosis and treatment of malignant neoplasms.
The Movement's core is comprised of people who have managed to stop the disease, or have such an aim. At the same time, the Movement Against Cancer is not a small patient organization. It is exactly a broad public movement that united prominent experts in oncology, opinion leaders, politicians, businessmen, creative professionals, athletes and journalists.

What Movement Against Cancer advocates for
The National Oncological Program and the new insurance system of drug supply should ensure access for all cancer patients, regardless of their disease stage and disability status, to the most up-to-date and effective diagnosis and treatment, as adopted in most of developed countries.
All expenses for the provision of medicines for cancer patients and innovative testing methods to identify individual characteristics of patient's tumor must be born by the government, which guarantees the provision of free medical care.
In Russia, the latest treatment standards and protocols shall be used in oncology, which present the latest advances in medicine and are already implemented in developed countries.
