The first Leadership in Action meeting for UICC members in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region took place in Muscat, Oman, from Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd April 2019, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
Hosted by the Oman Cancer Association (OCA), the meeting brought together CEO-level (or equivalent) executives from the region. Building momentum towards the 2020 World Cancer Congress in Oman, it was an opportunity for leaders in the region to discuss common challenges, explore closer collaborations and hear about the latest cancer control topics in the region.

Five participants at the Leadership in Action meeting in Oman were selected to receive Leadership Development Grants, giving them the opportunity to visit another organisation in the region to share knowledge and skills while promoting regional collaboration.
