2022 World Cancer Congress

UICC’s 2022 World Cancer Congress will take place on 18-20 October in Geneva, a global health hub where UICC is headquartered. Driven by the theme, “Committed to global collaboration and knowledge sharing to accelerate progress in cancer control”, the 2022 Congress will be a combination of exclusive on-site events and virtual components, such as on-demand sessions and podcasts aimed at a worldwide audience.

The 2022 World Cancer Congress is designed to maximise opportunities for participants to interact, make connections and exchange knowledge and expertise. High-level keynotes, "Big Debates" and cutting-edge sessions, roundtables and abstract presentations will cover the full spectrum of cancer control.

Once again, the UICC World Cancer Congress will play its core role of convening and uniting the cancer and NCD communities, and drive progress in reducing the global burden of cancer through the power of knowledge sharing and collective action.
