Public Policies are sets of programs, actions and activities developed by the State directly or indirectly, with the participation of public or private entities, which aim to ensure a certain right of citizenship, in a diffuse way or for a certain social, cultural, ethnic or economic segment.

Abrale has a Public Policy and Advocacy team focused on relationships and actions that bring improvements and transparency in laws and government processes, to benefit patients with cancer and blood diseases.

We work intensively, together with health agencies, to improve the awareness, humanization and access to cancer treatment. Our purpose is to improve the outcome of treatments in Brazil. Abrale is an active member and is the vice-coordinator of the Intersectoral Commission on Health Care for People with Pathologies – CIASPP. ; also coordinates the Intersectoral Committee on Supplementary Health – CISS; and is a surrogate in the Radiotherapy Working Group – CONSINCA.

We visit the main cancer treatment centers in the country (CACON and UNACON) in order to detect the real needs of the units. Based on the demands found, we collect information and start strategic planning, which has partners, companies or public bodies, who can contribute to the improvement of assistance. Likewise, the demands and barriers reported by patients and doctors, who relate to our entity, support our agenda in this department. The aim of all the work is to build bridges between those who need help and those who can help.


The Voices Project’s main objective is to expand and qualify the participation of oncology actors in the deliberations of government bodies and agencies. The project brings together patients, family members, caregivers, health professionals and leaders in the public and private health area, to together define priorities and be able to humanize and expand care, minimize the bureaucracy faced by people with cancer treated in Brazil and improve the outcomes of the treatments offered, based on the National Cancer Prevention and Control Policy (PNPCC).

The actions are carried out by the Department of Public Policies and Advocacy of Abrale and All Against Cancer (TJCC) Movement, together with the government, with decision makers in Brazil, such as the Mixed Parliamentary Front for the Fight Against Cancer, Ministry of Health, State Secretariats of Health, the National Agency of Supplementary Health, among other government bodies and regulatory agencies.


ABRALE – Brazilian Lymphoma and Leukemia Association – was founded in 2002 with the mission of offering help and mobilizing partners so that all people with blood cancer in Brazil have access to the best treatment.
