Treatment for All

What is Treatment for All?

Treatment for All (T4A) is the name of a new, bold and inspiring advocacy initiative run by UICC. Building on the commitments of the 2017 cancer resolution, T4A calls on the international cancer community to address the global equity gap in access to cancer services and support governments in low and middle income countries who are working to improve the provision of information, availability and access to cancer services for the whole of their population.

What does it aim to achieve?

T4A aims to decrease the 4.3 million premature deaths annually from cancer worldwide through a global campaign engaging a growing network of motivated national cancer organisations intent on helping governments fulfil their obligations to deliver a 25% reduction in premature deaths through cancer and other NCDs by 2025. T4A will encourage countries to deliver four pillars of cancer treatment and care:

  1. improving the quality of cancer data for public health use
  2. increasing the number of people with access to early detection and accurate cancer diagnosis
  3. provision of timely and quality treatment for early and metastatic disease for all
  4. at minimum a basic supportive and palliative care service for all.
