St. Etienne. The Stephanois Cancer Plan is officially launched

“This plan is the result of a collective reflection that involved all Stephanois and Stefanois”, underlined the mayor, Gael Perdriou, at La Comité Friday afternoon, when the municipality’s cancer plan was officially launched.

The elected official was surrounded for the occasion by MEP and oncologist Veronique Trillet-Lenore and President of the National League Against Cancer, Professor Daniel Nizzari.

Gaël Perdriau recalled the tools used to develop this cancer plan, the fruit of two years of work. It was established based on a report by Professor Frank Chauvin, Director of Prevention and Population Health at Saint-tienne University Hospital, but also thanks to a consultation platform for associations, hearings with users and health professionals, and for residents.

These phases of hearings and consultations, around eight subjects, will also provide the basis for writing a concrete action plan that will be implemented by the end of 2022.

The mayor emphasized the “move towards” approach of this cancer plan, which aims to combat social inequalities in access to care in the Saint-इटtienne region.

Concrete action is planned, such as the deployment of containment buses to meet residents or the establishment of health centers specifically for screening. A full day was open to the general public on the Place Jean-Jaurs, where a “containment village” with themed events awaited visitors.

In the evening, Professor Chauvin hosted a conference at La Comité on cancer prevention, followed by a discussion on the topic “Cities, Cancer and Wellness”, one of the key axes of municipal policy.
