"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."
National Cancer Centre (NCC) was established in 2000. It strives to improve national health and welfare by reducing the incidence and mortality of cancer through research, patient care, education & training, and support for the national cancer control programs.
"Vision 2020" is a program that represents the organizations goals into the future, where it fights to protect the Korean people from cancer through innovative research, quality medical care, optimal training of cancer experts, and support for national cancer control programs.
In 2001, NCC became full UICC member.
