As part of the national activation of Treatment for All, UICC is keen to engage individuals and organisations who would be willing to mentor and support UICC member organisations in their engagement with the Treatment for All campaign, in particular the Treatment for All online course and the preparations required for the Country Champions to launch a national Treatment for All campaign on World Cancer Day 2020. Support may take the form of technical expertise, facilitation of new contacts, explanatory phone calls or webinars, and project management guidance.
As Mentors, your engagement will contribute to the collective efforts of civil society to prioritise cancer control and help shape effective national policies to secure better outcomes for patients, supporting the translation of the global commitments into national action. Furthermore, joining as a mentor could be a great development opportunity for individual staff, sharing their knowledge and expertise with others, and bringing a global perspective to their work.
Mentors should meet the following criteria:
Mentor commitments include:
UICC will have primary oversight and responsibility for all activities within the national activation of Treatment for All, including engagement with Treatment for All Country Champions and monitoring of overall progress. UICC will also develop relevant tools and materials, including the toolkit, virtual course, and monitoring and evaluation templates, to support Country Champions with development and implementation of their national Treatment for All advocacy campaigns. These materials will support Mentors in their role, to enable them to provide direct one-on-one guidance and advice.
