"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."
Hôpital Aristide Le Dantec, CHU Dakar was established in 2001.
The Hospital's main objectives are to better the diagnosis and treatment of cancers especially childhood cancers and to create a paediatric oncology centre. This second objective became a reality with UICC's "My Child Matters" initiative.
In August 2008, the Hospital became associate UICC member.
