World Cancer Declaration Progress Report 2016
The 1000-strong UICC membership have worked collectively to create the World Cancer Declaration Progress Report 2016, providing a unique civil society perspective on national successes and major challenges that remain to realise the Declaration targets, with perspectives from 113 countries. Explore the reports below and find out more about where this information comes from.
We encourage you to explore the country reports, share the Report and provide feedback, additional resources, or success stories using the online form.
Whilst many UICC members are contributing to the development of national cancer and NCD plans – the Report highlights that many of these are not publically available or are not being implemented due to lack of funding, or expertise for scale up. To address these and other challenges, the Report includes a series of thematic pages highlighting key global initiatives and resources, which can help drive national progress. The online version of the Report also integrates case studies from UICC members demonstrating progress on particular Declaration targets.
In developing countries, where the burden of cancer is set to increase most rapidly, governments are urgently seeking best-practice guidance for achieving sustainable services with equitable access for timely cancer diagnosis and treatment.
We believe it is critical to respond by uniting as a cancer community to call for a comprehensive and robust World Health Assembly cancer resolution in 2017.
The resolution would articulate and establish the core disciplines and services for a holistic, impactful and scalable response, adapted to the local burden, and aligned with national capacities.
We would welcome the support and input of the whole UICC membership in this endeavour - to find out more, join our advocacy network or support the call for the resolution, please use the links provided.
