"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."
Childhood Cancer International (CCI) is a worldwide umbrella organisation of parent groups of children and adolescents with cancer. CCI works with its members and partners to raise awareness for early diagnosis of childhood cancers, to make childhood cancer medicines available and accessible worldwide, and to improve the pain care management for children with cancer. In addition it provides an opportunity for diverse parent groups around the world to share information and experiences. CCI became a UICC associate member in August 2006.
