The OCC seeks to address the many challenges women with ovarian cancer face, to increase knowledge and access to best care, in order to ultimately improve survival and support better quality of life for ovarian cancer patients.

Prof. Nicole Concin, ESGO President

The OCC recognises the power of community and will act as a collective voice for everyone diagnosed with ovarian cancer, providing a vital opportunity for their views to be heard and connect people, information and resources. I do believe that together we can drive forward better outcomes.

Petra Adamkova, Co-Chair, ENGAGe

We are proud to join forces with the wider community to drive progress in the understanding, management and outcomes of ovarian cancer. Although significant progress has been made in recent decades, ovarian cancer is a complex problem that can only be solved through collaboration.
