Working in partnership is central to how UICC delivers success and we are proud to work closely with organisations, networks, and alliances from around the world to drive progress in the fight against cancer. Working with these groups brings the experience, expertise and energy needed to drive our collective efforts across our advocacy portfolio including:

  • Increasing the number of countries with comprehensive National Cancer Control Plans
  • Scaling up cancer prevention
  • Calling for equitable access to screening, diagnosis, multimodal treatment, and palliative care
  • Increasing investment in cancer control and financial protection for patients as part of the drive to universal health coverage
  • Supporting the global Non-communicable diseases (NCD) movement

Relationship principles

Principle 1: The ONA must have a strong potential for impact and must further UICC’s purpose.

Principle 2: The ONA’s culture of management and operation must be compatible with UICC’s culture.

Principle 3: The mission, goals, values, and strategies of the ONA must be consistent with those of UICC.

Principle 4: The ONA must have a good environment for collaboration.

Principle 5: The benefits must outweigh the risks associated with the being part of the ONA.

Principle 6: The ONA should not jeopardise any existing relationships with other UICC members or ONAs.

Principle 7: The relationship ideally should expand UICC’s influence, scope, and audience, especially by providing access to other potential members or ONAs.

Principle 8: The ONA understands that the long-term ambitions of UICC are determined by the Board of Directors, and ONAs and their members are not in a position to actively define the strategy.
