The Danish Cancer Society

24. Nov 2016
The purpose of the Danish Cancer Society is that fewer people get cancer, that more survive cancer and get a better life after cancer.

The Danish Cancer Society is the largest private disease-fighting association with more than 450,000 members. The organization fights cancer through research, documentation, quality of cancer treatment and prevention, education and patient support with 650 full-time employees and over 30,000 volunteers.

The Danish Cancer Society annually raises over 650 million kroner from the Danish population in support of cancer research. The organization has local associations in each municipality and patient-related facilities in all Danish regions near the major hospitals, including in Region Zealand and Southern Denmark.

The Society has the most experienced and strongest overall research environment for cancer epidemiology and use of registers in the Nordic region. It is built on the basis of hosting the Cancer Registry from 1943 to 1997. At the same time the patient-related clinical research has been strengthened and coupled to register research expertise.
