'Together for Action' - UICC's new campaign: Be a part of it

To mark World Cancer Day on 4 February, UICC publicly launched its new three-year campaign 'Together For Action' - which requires a total project funding goal of $20 million. The first phase of the campaign will coincide with the 2014 World Cancer Congress in Melbourne and a funding goal of $7million.

UICC has already secured funds totalling $3.5 million, benefitting from the tremendous support of almost all UICC’s partners so far.

We thank our leading members the World Cancer Research Fund International, the Dutch Cancer Society, the Swiss Cancer League, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and many others, as well as our long-time partners Varian, Sanofi, Roche, Pfizer, Elekta – to name a few – which stepped in to join our new campaign, demonstrating a fantastic commitment and ongoing endeavour to help us transform the way cancer is viewed around the world. We are also delighted to welcome new partners of choice - the Friends of Cancer Patients, the Cancer Society of Finland, the MD Anderson Cancer Centre, Würth and BUPA.

Whilst UICC’s first campaign Together We Are Stronger successfully supported the cancer community to present a united front to governments and ensured cancer and the other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) gain greater priority in the highest political sphere, Together For Action has the ambition to accelerate the pace of change as stressed by Cary Adams, UICC’s CEO, in this video.
