UICC Awards

Recognising outstanding achievements and innovative practices from across the UICC membership.

In order to achieve our collective goals for global cancer control, we need to learn from the remarkable leaders, campaigners, advocates, fundraisers and collaborators from across our community of members.

The UICC Awards aim to identify and celebrate the exceptional contributions made by UICC members and inspire the cancer control community through their efforts.

Open to UICC members only, nominations are sought on Congress years in any of the five categories below for the chance to be recognised at an Award Ceremony during the World Cancer Congress.

The inaugural 2018 Awards were announced following the UICC General Assembly, during the World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur, 1 – 4 October 2018
