EuroCARE is a project developed for the study of the survival rate of patients with cancer. The project started in 1989 with 14 health institutes in Europe. The number has increased since then and nowadays a unique international database of cancer survival rates is available. The EuroCARE data is divided according to the time period. The objective is to provide information on the survival and care of cancer patients in Europe.
