City Cancer Challenge was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and our mission is to build a collective movement of cities, supported by global and local partners, to deliver quality, equitable, and sustainable cancer treatment solutions for all. To achieve our mission, we work in partnership with a network of motivated city and regional leaders, ministries of health, civil society organizations, industry, development actors, health professionals, and patient advocates to achieve a direct and concrete impact on cancer mortality rates.
Since its launch at the World Economic forum in January 2017, City Cancer Challenge and its partners have implemented localized action plans in four “Key Learning Cities,” which have the potential to improve cancer care for over 25 million people. Building on the success of the Key Learning Cities, we have now launched the next phase of City Cancer Challenge, which aims to scale up support to a wider network of cities in all regions. The expansion aims to accelerate progression of the initiative from four to twenty cities by 2020.
