Virtual Dialogues

UICC's Virtual Dialogues provide members, and the cancer community, with regular opportunities to connect, exchange knowledge, access expert insights, and share solutions from the comfort of one's office or home.

Launched in 2020 as a means to maintain connections and facilitate discussions at a time of reduced travel and in-person contacts, the UICC's Virtual Dialogues provide members, and the cancer community, with regular opportunities to connect, exchange knowledge, access expert insights, and share solutions from the comfort of one's office or home.

Covering a range of formats and topics, the Dialogues have one key characteristic: they are 'meetings' in nature, just taking place in the virtual space, with participants encouraged to interact with the discussion, whether via audio, chat box, or Q&As.

I gained so much information through participating in the Virtual Dialogue. I get to know how other countries are doing and progress on cancer and see the opportunities to improve on our cancer activities.
