Victor Yushchenko has sent a letter to Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych with a request to submit a 2007-2016 State Program to Fight Cancer to parliament for a vote, president's press office informs.

He said the country’s cancer rate was growing, calling on the government “to join our efforts to use a complex approach to the problem.”

The government failed to formulate and propose such a program last year and therefore no funds are provided for its implementation in this year’s budget. Now the cabinet has to submit it by October 1, 2007.

“I would like to ask you to take effective measures to implement the above-mentioned task without delay and inform me about its results,” he said.
