The International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP), formed in November 2012, is a group of organisations engaged in supporting country cancer control planning efforts. Through the ICCP, these organisations, including the WHO, CDC, NCI-USA, and UICC, are committed to working together to ensure that all countries have a well-resourced, quality cancer control plan, integrated with non-communicable disease control efforts.

The ICCP Portal

The ICCP Portal is a one-stop shop for cancer prevention and control planning. It hosts topic-specific networks across the cancer care continuum that identifies best practices, key resources and gaps in those fields.

Why the ICCP Portal?

The members of the United Nations committed themselves to a set of measures within four priority areas – governance, prevention, health care, and surveillance and monitoring. These time-bound measures include setting national NCD targets consistent with global targets, developing national NCD multisectoral plans by 2015, and starting implementation of those plans by 2016, in order to achieve the national targets.(Source: Global Status Report on NCDs 2014)                                                                             

Taking part in global efforts to reach the reduction of one-third of premature deaths due to NCDs (in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goal 3.4), the International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP) is a unique initiative that addresses the need for the cancer control community to invest its efforts in the development and implementation of National Cancer Control Plans (NCCPs) as described in the Global Status Report in 2014.
