UICC hosts live webinars in readiness for 20th anniversary milestone

As the anticipation of World Cancer Day begins to climb in the two months leading up to the 20th anniversary celebrations, UICC will be hosting a dedicated webinar to help prepare all UICC members. 

The 45-minute live webinar will provide members an inside look at the 20th anniversary initiatives, including: 

  • A preview of World Cancer Day content and the social media activity 
  • A walk-through the top level findings of the International Public Perception Poll
  • The World Cancer Day global press story 

The team will also answer questions about how members can contribute to further amplifying the shared campaign message, with time to exchange with the World Cancer Day team and other UICC members. 

UICC members have a pivotal role in the success of World Cancer Day. By unifying under a collective theme of 'I Am and I Will', we ensure that the voice of the international cancer community continues to reach supporters, government leaders, policy makers and the press and media with maximum impact .

The webinar will be particularly valuable to anyone working in press outreach and communications, social media, as well as advocacy. All UICC members are encouraged to have a representative attend one of the four webinars.

About World Cancer Day 

World Cancer Day every 4 February is the global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). By raising worldwide awareness, improving education and catalysing personal, collective and government action, we're working together to reimagine a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are saved and access to life-saving cancer treatment and care is equal for all - no matter who you are or where you live. 

Created in 2000, World Cancer Day has grown into a positive movement for everyone, everywhere to unite under one voice to face one of our greatest challenges in history. 

Each year, hundreds of activities and events take place around the world, gathering communities, organisations and individuals in schools, businesses, hospitals, marketplaces, parks, community halls, places of worship - in the streets and online - acting as a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing the global impact of cancer.

This year's World Cancer Day's theme, 'I Am and I Will', is all about you and your commitment to act. We believe that through our positive actions, together we can reach the target of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and noncommunicable diseases by one third by 2030
