UICC aims to unite the cancer community through its members and partners, as well as an expansive and growing network
Networks and partners

UICC, established in 1933, is the oldest and largest cancer fighting organisation globally, with more than 1000 members across 162 countries, more than 50 partners, and official relations with the World Health Organization, International Agency for Research on Cancer, International Atomic Energy Agency, United Nations Office of Drug and Crime, and consultative status at United Nations Economic and Social Council.

We aim to unite the cancer community through the access and exchange of knowledge, strengthened capacity, and an expansive and growing network, at the global, national and local level, by focusing on convening, capacity building and advocacy. These partnerships are essential to delivering the World Cancer Declaration targets, as well as to driving our global advocacy agenda.
