"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."
The Chinese Anti-Cancer Association (CACA), founded in 1984, has a mission to unite people involved in all branches of oncology and others with a similar interest in fighting cancer.
CACA aims its utmost efforts at organizing scientific cooperation and conferences, promoting international non-governmental exchanges, conducting various training courses and seminars, fostering scientific, technological and medical personnel in the field of oncology, compiling and publishing academic periodicals, and mobilizing social forces to take part in popularization and dissemination of the knowledge of tumor prevention.
Globally, the association is interested in organizing academic meetings with international colleagues in order to cultivate friendly ties with overseas oncology organizations and individuals.
The Chinese Anti-Cancer Association has been a full UICC member since January 1997.
