"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.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS: UICC is delighted to launch two important membership projects: the Membership Online Profile platform and the 2013 Membership Survey.
Online profile platform
The online profile for members is a tool to be used to update your organisations’ activities which are displayed on the UICC website at http://www.uicc.org/membership. This is an opportunity to showcase your work among other members and the international cancer community in general.
Also, through your online profile you can update the contact details for your organisation, which we will keep for internal use only. In addition, you are able to configure your password, so you can update your account with new information (contacts or activities) at anytime in the future. Please see directions on How to login to Member Online profile.
2013 Membership Survey
The Members Survey has been designed to understand better your priorities and views on what we do on your behalf. You will be receiving the survey on 4 September and we will appreciate your input. The results from the survey will help us to direct our actions and better meet your expectations.
Our membership numbers have grown quickly in the last two years so we believe it is now time to learn more about your priorities and to explore how we can work better together to achieve our mission of eliminating cancer as a life-threatening disease for future generations.
