The Advocacy with impact Award

2018 UICC Award Nomination Form

The Advocacy with impact Award aims to recognise the outstanding work of UICC members in developing and implementing impactful advocacy programmes or campaigns. Advocacy plays a critical role in cancer control planning and is necessary in any resource setting to influence policy and improve delivery of cancer programmes and services in view of reducing premature mortality due to cancer and other NCDs by 2025.

In addition, the Cancer Resolution that was adopted by Member States at the 2017 World Health Assembly provides countries with guidance for national action around health promotion and risk factor reduction, and emphasises the need to address inequity in access to early detection, timely and appropriate treatment, including pain relief and palliative care. We invite UICC members to showcase their capacity to bring about change and enter the Advocacy with impact Award in view of sharing their achievements with the rest of the global cancer community.

Important note: each UICC member can submit maximum one advocacy initiative for consideration for the Advocacy with impact Award.
