UICC is dedicated to taking the lead in convening, capacity building and advocacy initiatives that unite and support the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues in the world health and development agenda.
Founded in 1933 and based in Geneva, Switzerland, UICC is the largest and oldest international cancer organisation. With over 1,100 members and 56 partners across 170 countries, UICC features the world’s major cancer societies, ministries of health, research and treatment institutes, patient groups, and industry leaders.
World Cancer Day takes place every year on 4 February and is the single initiative under which the world can unite to raise the profile of cancer in a positive and inspiring way. The day aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action.
2020 is the 20th anniversary of World Cancer Day and marks the second year of the three-year campaign, ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign, which explores how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.
