"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites 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."
The ICCP Portal is a one-stop stop for cancer prevention and control planning. It hosts topic-specific networks across the cancer care continuum that identifies best practices, key resources and gaps in those fields.

Due to the past decades of effort devoted to overcoming cancer, the outcome of cancer patients with early-stage disease has been greatly improved. However, the prognosis for patients with advanced disease remains poor. Indeed, for many years, cancer has been the leading cause of death in Japan. In order to bring about breakthroughs, they must develop novel therapies from a new perspective.
Since 1970 Osaka Medical Center for Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease has been a full UICC member.
