Virtual Dialogues

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.

Ranging across three different formats and including series for key thematic areas, the Dialogues are designed to facilitate spaces for members' interaction, immersion on key topics, and the exploration of broader trends.


  • Member Dialogues: participatory online sessions, designed for connection and peer-learning, where UICC members will be able to share individual experiences and perspectives on key themes in a facilitated setting.  
  • Special Focus Dialogues: deep-dive discussions addressing key questions or introducing new concepts through online panel discussions, remote expert presentations or virtual workshops.
  • Long-View Dialogues: forward-looking workshops where influential voices and prominent experts will invite participants to take the ‘long view’ on some of the broader issues and challenges for the global health and cancer communities.
