This event is by invitation and for UICC members only

It takes political will alongside innovation and availability of human and financial resources to improve the health outcomes of the people. It is therefore vital for cancer advocates to secure the support of policy and lawmakers who can commit the necessary resources and enact supportive policies to bring about change. 
UICC has recently launched a capacity building initiative that provides support to UICC members in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to work collaboratively with governments and raise the profile of cancer through effective advocacy. 

As part of this initiative, UICC members benefit from a practical guide on coalition building, advocacy, fundraising and monitoring and evaluation, alongside accompanying webinars and mentorship from prominent cancer organisation with a track record in advocacy for cancer control. This learning journey will culminate in an in-person workshop in Nur-Sultan on 17th October 2019. This will be the first opportunity for participants to meet one another, share their learning experiences so far, and support the development of their national advocacy strategies to produce strong campaigns for launch on World Cancer Day 2020.

The workshop is expected to be attended by UICC members from the following countries: Burkina Faso, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Iraq, Kenya, Malawi, Mongolia, Namibia, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Peru, Philippines, Samoa, Senegal and Tajikistan.
Format of the workshop
Drawing upon the experiences and discussions of the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit centred around UHC, the one-day workshop will be divided into short, dynamic and participatory sessions aimed to facilitate discussion through both group and individual works based on case scenarios. 
Sessions will cover, but won’t be limited, to the following issues:
- Cost-effective interventions for cancer control 
- How to draft compelling and evidence-based advocacy messages 
- Breaking down barriers to access cancer services
- Fundraising for cancer control 
- Monitoring and evaluation of advocacy campaigns.
Focus will be placed on cervical cancer advocacy efforts.
The workshop will be facilitated by UICC staff and joined by relevant global experts on cancer control alongside current partners of the initiative.
