UICC plays a unique and important role in the global cancer and health communities.
UICC reviews its long-term strategic ambitions every four years. It maps out the implementation through a rolling three-year business plan guided by successive Boards of Directors. This document covers the period 2023-2025.
Ultimately, UICC wishes to contribute positively to a world in which no-one dies from a preventable cancer, and those who have cancer have access to quality treatment and care.
UICC mission is to unite and support the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda.
Cancer control aims to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of cancer and to improve the quality of life of cancer patients in a defined population, through the systematic implementation of evidence-based interventions for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and supportive care.
