Building on the success of the UICC member awards launched at the 2018 World Cancer Congress, UICC has now created the Outstanding Contribution to Cancer Control Award. This annual distinction will recognise and celebrate the outstanding work of individuals whose efforts have contributed to advancing cancer care and control.
The new award will be presented for the first time at the 2019 World Cancer Leaders’ Summit (WCLS) in Nur-Sultan, the capital of Kazakhstan. Discover the three shortlisted nominees using the link below.
In keeping with the theme of the 2019 WCLS, the focus of this year’s Outstanding Contribution to Cancer Control Award is on cancer and Universal Health Coverage.
