To maximise the impact of our collective efforts for global cancer control, it is important to learn from the many examples of leaders, campaigners, advocates and fundraisers from across the cancer community.
The UICC Awards aim to identify and celebrate the contributions made by professionals and organisations from the UICC membership and inspire the cancer control community through their efforts.
Open to UICC members only, nominations are sought on World Cancer Congress years in a number of categories for the chance to be recognised at a dedicated Award Ceremony, normally held at the World Cancer Congress.
First launched on the occasion of the 2018 World Cancer Congress, and then held virtually in a reduced format in 2020 due to the cancellation of the Congress following the COVID-19 pandemic, the UICC Awards have recognised individuals, organisations and projects in a range of different categories.
