Conference “Women, work and cancer”

Work on the prevention of occupational cancer in women is currently facing some difficulties. Epidemiological research in this area focuses far more often on men than on women. There is a stereotype of occupational cancer only being an issue for male professions in traditional industries.

The ETUI has organised a conference ‘Women, work and cancer,  which will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 4 and 5 December 2018. This event will be an opportunity to examine the relations between working conditions and female cancer. The fight to end discrimination against female workers with cancer or post recovery will also be an important topic.

For more information and registration:

Registration is free of charge but mandatory due to the limited availability of seats. Travel and accommodation are to be organised and paid for by the delegate.
