Cancer control is subject to regional specificities in relation to levels of resources for access to cancer services, the landscape of civil society representation and actions, the factors contributing to cancer incidence and mortality, and now with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that UICC member organisations face particular challenges depending on where they operate. They need solutions and best practices adapted to their own settings.
To address this need for context-specific perspectives and provide a dedicated platform for regional communities to interact and share best practices, UICC is initiating a series of regionally-focused Virtual Dialogues to be held from April to June 2021 for six different regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, Latin America, North America.
The audience consists of all UICC members and their staff/volunteers who are willing to engage and share their experience and perspectives with peers from their region, and wish to learn about UICC projects and opportunities for the region and beyond. While the primary focus will be on UICC members, the Dialogues will be open to the cancer community, including cancer societies, research and cancer centres, professional associations, ministries of health and patient support groups interested in these regional gatherings.
Translation in relevant language/s will be proposed when possible to ensure accessibility to the audience.
