"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites and supports the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda."
Cancer control programme comprises a series of activities to diminish the total impact of cancer in any community or country by prevention, early detection, and the provision of facilities for appropriate treatment at an early stage of the disease. Also included are follow-up and rehabilitation of the treated cases, treatment of recurrent cases, and relief of pain for patients with incurable cancers. Evaluation of the programme is necessary from time to time as per data provided by the Cancer Registry.
In 1995, the Bangladesh Cancer Society became full UICC member.
