I am convinced that highly qualified specialists, modern equipment and innovative technologies are the most important components of successful cancer treatment.”

Valerio Gelfuso, President of the Rafael group of companies, said: “When we first started preparing this event, both in Rome and in Moscow, many people asked us the same question:” Why are you organizing this event? What is the purpose?”. The goal of GC Atlas of Health and GC Rafael is progress. Attention! We are not talking about development. In the most important scientific and technical forums and meetings around the world, the concept of “development” is increasingly used, but development is the strengthening of a specific dimension, and progress is the improvement of people’s lives. Development is aimed at technologies that are usually completely indifferent to human life, progress puts man in charge. Italian medicine today is one of the most advanced in the world, because it is aimed at progress, first of all, on the person, and then on technology. But we will never make progress if we close in our hospitals, in our research laboratories, because science is a place of discussion of ideas, and only if there are many ideas and they are different, then, Yes, we will find a way to progress.”
