Patient Awareness

ESGO Awareness Activities

Raising public awareness in matters of prevention, early detection, understanding of symptoms and treatment options in gynae cancers, healthy lifestyle has been on the ESGO agenda for many years.

ESGO organizes multiple activities such as ESGO Awareness Run, Ride4Women and annual Patient Seminars that – hopefully – brought the European community to at least marginally reducing the occurrence of gynae cancers, improved public education and raised general awareness.

Check out below the upcoming awareness activities.

ENGAGE Patient Seminar


Patient Advocacy Seminars are a platform for leaders of patient groups to share & exchange knowledge, foster collaborations and empower themselves with information that will help them tackle the issues they face back home.

Patient advocacy seminars have been organised:
