"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."
Malaysian National Cancer Council (MAKNA) was founded in 1994 as a non-profit organization. It is meant to mobilize resources in order to provide curative, preventative, research and support services to cancer patients and their families.
MAKNA works to utilize all efforts, expertise and finance from all sectors of the society, to fight cancer and reduce related pain, morbidity and the suffering that cancer patients undergo.
They provide screening and early diagnostic facilities to enable early detection of cancer and effectively distribute information about cancer awareness to all levels of society.
MAKNA became an associate UICC member in 1997.
