Regional engagement


With 1’000 members from 162 countries having different organisational models, at different stages of development and strength, in different contexts and cultures, UICC recognises that all members have a unique combination of challenges and needs.

To better understand the capacity building and resourcing needs of our members in each region, more than 60 in-depth interviews were conducted and we reviewed existing activities in order to further develop relevant and sustainable programmes with a regional focus.

Based on findings of the review, a pilot capacity building programme for Francophone Africa was launched at the 2016 World Cancer Congress in Paris, to be followed by additional regional programmes at the 2017 World Cancer Leaders’ Summit in Mexico for Latin America, and at the 2018 World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur for Asia Pacific.
