The new 2018 World Cancer Congress website is now live

25 April 2017

The overall aesthetic of the site draws from the Malaysian lively culture and architecture through rounded shapes and bright colours as the next World Congress is due to take place from 1 to 4 October 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Through its theme ‘Strengthen. Inspire. Deliver’, the 2018 conference should mobilise +3,500 international cancer and health experts to share the latest successful interventions in prevention, diagnosis and care, as well as supportive and palliative care during a whole week.
