At its meeting on 22 December 1994, the European Council discussed the proposal for a Decision adopting an action plan (1995-1999) to combat cancer within the framework of action in the field of public health.

The proposal follows on from the Commission communication on the framework for action in the field of public health and from the first two action plans against cancer (1987-1989 and 1990-1994).

The following aspects in particular were addressed:

- Content and scope of the action plan;
- Types of action to be undertaken;
- Nature and tasks of the committee to assist the Commission in implementing the plan.

The Council instructed the Permanent Representatives Committee to round off proceedings in light of discussions and of the opinion still to come from the European Parliament so that a common position could be adopted as soon as possible.
