"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."
The mission of the Samoa Cancer Society is to promote and facilitate the early detection and treatment of cancer and to provide long term and/or terminal cancer sufferers with access to palliative care. Our newly established National Cancer Resource Centre will provide information to cancer sufferers and families:
• Offer counselling services and rehabilitation activities
• Enable health practitioners to consult books and on line research
• Organise village visits to raise awareness of cancer symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
• Promote early detection and screening for cancer
