Cancer beyond COVID-19 series

Virtual Dialogues series - Cancer beyond COVID-19

A series of virtual 'workshops' exploring the transformed healthcare landscape

Over 2020 and beyond 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 invited 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.
