Leadership in Action meetings

For UICC members only badge

The Leadership in Action meetings are the regional component of the CEO Programme, bringing together senior leaders of cancer societies, hospitals, patient groups, professional associations and other UICC members in their regions. They provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning on regionally relevant themes, and include a multi-sectoral platform, the Public-Private Dialogue series, which invite stakeholders from the private and other sectors to contribute their perspectives on a range of cancer control topics.
