Promoting cancer in global health and development agendas.

UICC unites the cancer community through our members and partners to reduce the global cancer burden and drive forward the Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) agenda. Building on the inclusion of NCDs into Agenda 2030 and the World Cancer Declaration UICC is working to integrate effective cancer control into existing health services and development plans. We are working towards ensuring all countries have strong health systems to deliver effective and comprehensive patient-centred care which is responsive to population-based cancer registries.


Advocacy is the ongoing process of changing attitudes, actions, policies and laws by influencing individuals, groups and organisations. Communicating clear and consistent messaging to the right audience is critical. The advocacy resources we have available are designed to support cancer advocates, and can be selected depending on your priorities and needs.
