Collaborating with the cancer patient community
Our partnerships with patient organizations enable us to better understand the reality of living with different cancer types, so that we can focus our efforts on delivering impactful support programs and educational materials tailored to the needs of those living with them.
One example of this is our collaboration with the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) on Together for Kidney Cancer; a global disease awareness initiative co-created with the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) to empower people with kidney cancer to take more active roles in their treatment and care decisions.
By forging long-term partnerships with the oncology patient community, co-creating strategies and projects that focus on what really matters to patients, we can make the biggest difference to those living with cancer.

We work together with the cancer patient community around the world on a range of different projects, across all stages from research and development, clinical study information, and patient support programs.

Partnerships with patient organizations
Ipsen has worked together with many Global and European communities, supporting people affected by cancer.
The International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC)
“The International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) views Ipsen as a key leader in helping to amplify the patient voice and make a meaningful difference to people living with kidney cancer. It is clear that they share our vision: To reduce the global burden of kidney cancer.”
Digestive Cancers Europe (DiCE)
“As the incidence of liver cancer in Europe keeps rising, we had to act now. For the first time, we have produced a social media campaign to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of liver cancer as well as preventive measures that can help reduce its risk. To bring this neglected topic in the political agenda, we have drafted and launched in collaboration with European Liver Patients’ Association (ELPA) our White Paper on Liver Cancer – No Patient Left Behind. We are delighted that Ipsen is among the funding partners supporting these activities.”
International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA)
“We have a long-standing trusting relationship with Ipsen who have helped advance many of our major strategic initiatives targeted at improving outcomes for patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms.”
