EUROPA UOMO, THE “EUROPEAN PROSTATE CANCER COALITION” PROSTATE? Europa Uomo was legally established in Milan in June 2004 as the European advocacy movement for the fight against prostate cancer. Europa Uomo’s objective is to increase awareness of prostate cancer in Europe. Europa Uomo is a European coalition of patients’ support groups for prostate diseases in general and prostate cancer in particular. At present Europa Uomo is represented in 23 countries of the European Economic Area. The Manifesto of aims is linked to these members in their own language. Our expansion is based on three guiding principles: 1. Keep patients' advocacy a priority with focus on quality of life based on solidarity and mutual respect. 2. Provide information to educate men based on objective, evidence-based holistic patient-centred care. 3. Collaborate with professional organisations to support optimal medical treatment.
