"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 Young Leaders Programme, UICC’s flagship initiative to nurture young professionals to become successful leaders in cancer control, started in earnest at the 2017 World Cancer Leaders Summit in Mexico City.
Following last week's discussions on the role of cities as drivers of change in cancer control at the World Cancer Leaders' Summit in Mexico City, our CEO Cary Adams encourages city leaders to think about high tobacco taxes as a cancer prevention tool.
Today in Mexico City over 300 global leaders in cancer control and public health are meeting at the 2017 World Cancer Leaders’ Summit to discuss how cities can drive change, translating the global commitments on cancer prevention and care into national action by 2025.
