Membership Survey 2013: Working with members
This year was marked by a milestone for Membership: the 2013 Survey. UICC undertook this exercise to better understand how we can serve you, our members – and your needs and expectations.
We received an overwhelming number of responses. Out of the 792 organisations invited to take part, a total of 312 completed surveys– giving us a strong response rate of 39% (well above the industry standard). All segments of our membership and all regions of the world were widely represented which make the results even more valuable. This is a testament of your commitment and we couldn’t be more thankful. These responses provide us with the basis for targeted actions in the next two years.
We were particularly pleased that the UICC ‘Purpose Statement’ is very strongly supported by our membership base. We are happy to know that we can all stand together behind this powerful statement:.
“We unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.”
