The Advocacy Exchange is a virtual platform created by GRYT Health and Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS), to unite advocacy organisations, patients and industry leaders in improving outcomes for people living with cancer.

GRYT Health is a digital oncology company that was started and is run by cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and researchers. Its goal is to provide support and resources to improve the experiences of people living with cancer and strengthen the patient voice in healthcare decision-making.

The company partnered with the global biopharmaceutical company and UICC partner BMS to create The Advocacy Exchange, a virtual platform that aims to unite advocacy organisations, patients and industry leaders in the exchange of information on cancer experiences. It is a global collaboration to foster meaningful growth and partnership across disease areas to improve outcomes for patients.

Created initially to support the urgent needs of the patient advocacy community as the COVID Advocacy Exchange (CAE), The Advocacy Exchange offers live, interactive discussions through which patient voices can be heard, and a virtual exhibit hall where participating organisations, such as UICC, can share resources and learn from one another.
