A Call to Action

The Global Ovarian Cancer Charter is a call to action for all those committed to improving survival and quality of life for people with ovarian cancer.  The six Global Goals of the Charter are intended to drive short- and medium- term improvements for women no matter where they live. The Charter was launched at the Presidential Plenary session of the 2020 xDigital Annual Global Meeting of the International Gynecologic Cancer Society on 12th September 2020.

The Global Goals

People who develop ovarian cancer should have the best possible chance of survival and best quality of life – wherever they live.

Sustained investment in research and infrastructure will ultimately deliver new and better diagnostic and treatment options, but there are opportunities to make progress right now through the Charter’s six Global Goals. Click each goal for more information. There are several translated versions of the Charter Summary available here.
