The majority of the panelists referred to smoking as one of the reasons that contributes to the increase of child cancer. Specialists advised that proper diet, lack of exposure to tobacco smoke and limited exposure to radiation from the sun can help prevent some forms of cancer, both for children and for adults.

The main objective of the event was to establish a centre of excellence for research on cancer issues as they relate to young people, at, and through the South East Europe Research Centre in Thessaloniki, Greece. This involves an established collaboration with leading paediatricians, oncologists and behavioural scientists within the Balkan region and beyond.
