Global cancer commitments navigator

Welcome to the global cancer commitments navigator. The tool below aims to help policy makers and cancer and NCD advocates build understanding about the links between international time bound commitments and priority actions for national impact.

Each of the documents hereafter – the 2017 cancer resolution, the Global Action Plan on NCDsWHO’s cost-effective recommendations for NCDs, and the Sustainable Development Goals – are connected and build on each other to provide stakeholders with a framework to develop and deliver comprehensive cancer services within a health and development context.

Each one reinforces the need for core investments in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and care services as an essential part of the health systems response to the growing global burden of cancer in terms of mortality, morbidity and contribution to poverty.

The tool above helps you navigate between these essential global documents, using linkages to build compelling arguments for national action in terms of:

  • Prioritising evidence-based approaches and a core package of services for impact on patient outcomes
  • Prioritising cost-effective interventions
  • Integration of cancer control efforts with NCD plans
  • Integration of cancer control efforts with infectious disease, child and maternal health services
  • Opportunities for a whole of government approach

Getting involved

We wish to supplement this tool with country case studies on best practices and successes in national implementation. We are particularly interested in those which demonstrate how policy support can drive cancer pathways and services for real improvements in terms of patient outcomes and equity in access.

Please use the questionnaire to submit your feedback and share how you have used the Navigator.

We also welcome feedback on this tool at advocacy@uicc.org.

To facilitate the inclusion of all the material in the Global Cancer Commitments Navigator some texts had to be shortened, as such users should refer to the original documents and sources for the full texts.
