Since its beginning in 1962 when UICC started administrating the 'American Cancer Society – Eleanor Roosevelt – International Cancer Fellowships', the fellowships initiative has grown significantly into a worldwide recognised programme.
UICC continues to award fellowships and workshops across the world to promote greater equity in cancer care and increase the transfer of knowledge to those who need it most.
The UICC Fellows' alumni community is made up of a diverse and energetic group of cancer specialists from all different fields of cancer control.
Over the course of the last three years, more than 700 professionals from 70 countries have been trained. The fellowship offer has also been strengthened and diversified by implementing new initiatives with partners such as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Chinese Anti-Cancer Association (CACA) and World Cancer Research Fund International (WCRF International), among others.
This section showcases just some of what has been acheived.
