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.
