The Project ECHO on breast cancer is delivered by UICC in partnership with the NCI Center for Global Health and the Breast Health Global Initiative. It is a six-month online training that aims at strengthening the knowledge of participating organisations on how to develop and implement strong breast cancer control policies and programmes, with the objective to improve breast cancer outcomes in less-resourced settings.

Virtual Fellowships involve a minimum of four one-hour video calls with an expert in a specified field of interest (priority initially given to cancer control and COVID-19 topics). They are open to candidates from UICC Member organisations who have at least five years’ experience working in cancer control.
UICC's Virtual Dialogues provide members with enhanced opportunities to connect, exchange knowledge, access expert insights, and share solutions on their respective and common challenges.

"I am so grateful for this course and addressing these issues and functionality in a way that is informative and also dispels the beliefs and taboo language and process around sexuality. So good to openly discuss and have good questions to ask. Thank you to the team who put this together and to the lecturers who gave their time and experience - such a well rounded course"
“UICC has pioneered the development of a tailor-made programme to support CEOs of cancer organisations in their leadership role and to help them address today’s challenges in the rapidly changing environment of cancer control. As a CEO myself, I was excited to experience these opportunities to mingle with peers, exchange thoughts and views, and hear about best practice case studies. I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to attend the sessions and meet other CEOs in the cancer field.”
"Being a UICC fellow is an outstanding opportunity to sharpen skills across different areas of cancer research and receive exceptional training to become a leader in the field of cancer control. It is also a valuable route to furthering career development, adding value to the work of one’s home institution and expanding professional networks."
