"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda."
The ICCP Portal is a one-stop stop for cancer prevention and control planning. It hosts topic-specific networks across the cancer care continuum that identifies best practices, key resources and gaps in those fields.
The UICC is proud to announce the launch of the UICC Workshops Programme. The Workshop aims to facilitate capacity building in key areas with linkage to UICC priority areas and World Cancer Declaration targets in low- and middle-income countries.
The Workshop programme seeks application proposals from qualified cancer professionals who work in official bodies, cancer institutes, professional associations, clinics or hospitals in low- and middle-income countries. Workshop proposals are evaluated by an independent Scientific Review Panel according to a peer review process.

YY Fellow Testimony
‘The YY fellowship allowed the fieldwork validation of an ethnographic study about representations of prostate cancer among French born and immigrant men. I received enormous support from my host institutions, Université de Paris 7, URMIS and Hôpital Saint Louis- Service of Urology and Ligue nationale contre le cancer. I took advantage of all possibilities to acquire and exchange new knowledge as an oncology nurse and as a researcher. This fellowship offers many opportunities for professionals at any stage of their careers. I would like to express my appreciation to UICC for their simple, fast and serious grant evaluation process that definitively initiated a new chapter in my career’.
