"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda."
The ICCP Portal is a one-stop stop for cancer prevention and control planning. It hosts topic-specific networks across the cancer care continuum that identifies best practices, key resources and gaps in those fields.
American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice.
It is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment.
The College sponsors a variety of continuing medical education programs, such as the clinical congress and spring meeting, to help update surgeons on the latest information on surgical subjects. They also conduct various programs through its Commission on Cancer to improve the care of the cancer patient.
American College of Surgeons became full UICC member in 1995.
