Best World Cancer Day Campaign Award

The Award was launched in 2018 and held every other year in connection with the UICC General Assembly. To reflect the new World Cancer Day theme of the next three years, this Award encourages UICC member organisations who organised a strong and impactful campaign that aligned to the "Close The Care Gap" theme and that truly aspired to close the gap in cancer care
