The Let’s Talk Prostate Cancer (LTPC) Digital Atlas provides an overview of prostate cancer outcomes across the EU and for each of the EU 27 countries and the UK.

The LTPC campaign is a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder initiative to address the challenges faced by people affected by prostate cancer and increase its policy prioritisation across Europe. It is led by an Expert Group representing key prostate cancer stakeholder organisations, including Europa Uomo, the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), The European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC), The European Association of Urology (EAU), and The European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN).
