Over the last few months, extraordinary upheaval was brought by the COVID-19 pandemic to societies, health systems, economies and governments across the world. While the crisis highlighted the structural weaknesses of many health systems and magnified existing inequalities in health outcomes, it has also accelerated key trends that may shape healthcare and public health in the years ahead.
Through this three-part series of Virtual Dialogues, UICC invites the cancer community to reflect on some of the changes set in motion by COVID-19, and discuss the implications for cancer prevention and control, and what actions may help transform this crisis into an opportunity to shape stronger, more equitable and resilient health systems for better cancer control.
Starting on 3 November with a focus on the disruption to cancer screening and diagnosis, the series will continue on 17 November looking at the transformation in cancer care delivery models and culminate on 1 December discussing the impact on health financing.
Registration for each upcoming dialogue in the series can be accessed from the relevant pages below. On demand recordings of the discussions are available on those same pages once the live event as taken place.
