The government has appointed Professor Mef Nilbert as a special investigator with the task of submitting proposals for an updated national cancer strategy. The updated strategy is the next step in developing the existing strategy that was presented in 2009, but is adapted to address the major developments that have taken place in cancer care since then. The update is made to ensure that Sweden has the necessary conditions to continue to be a pioneering country in cancer care. The updated strategy should be presented in the end of November 2024.
