What we’ve achieved
HPP acts as Secretariat to the Lung Cancer Policy Network, an initiative of the Lung Ambition Alliance set up in 2021. The Network is a global alliance of more than 50 experts from across the lung cancer community, including clinicians, researchers, patient organisations and industry partners.
The Network’s initial goal is to create a community of exchange, through which lessons learnt from the implementation of lung cancer screening can be shared.
In 2022, we launched the Network with an inaugural report, Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation. The report showcases existing research on LDCT screening for lung cancer and draws four key lessons from successful implementation of screening programmes.
In September 2022, the Lung Cancer Policy Network will launch an interactive map collating research on the implementation of LDCT screening from around the world. The map will facilitate the sharing of best practice, showcasing examples of current organised lung cancer screening programmes and the status of early detection of lung cancer in different countries. It will be updated twice a year.
As Secretariat, HPP created and manages the Lung Cancer Policy Network’s website and Twitter account.
