Regional Offers


As part of the regional offer for the Asia-Pacific, UICC is organising a high-level forum for our members in the region, aimed to encourage discussion about shared challenges and opportunities while strengthening the leadership skills needed for senior executives of cancer control organisations.

The forum will take place in conjunction with the 24th Asia Pacific Cancer Conference (APCC 2017), a highly relevant meeting featuring innovative techniques and the latest advances in the field of cancer care, hosted by the Asian and Pacific Federation of Organization for Cancer Research and Control (APFOCC).
