Programme - NOW ONLINE

The Programme is now available. View the Congress sessions by day.
The 2016 WCC Programme has been built around 5 different Tracks in order to cover the whole spectrum of cancer. In addition to the classic programme we have build special programmes addressed to specific audiences such as CEOs and Non-Communicable Diseases as well a programme adapted to francophone delegates. 

A highly educative and interactive congress programme

With the inclusion of cancer and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the Post 2015 Development Agenda, the 2016 World Cancer Congress theme 'Mobilising action - Inspiring change' will provide an even more opportune platform to Congress delegates to build on this momentum and continue to expand their sphere of influence and action for the successful implementation of these global commitments in their own settings.

The 2016 Congress aims to offer a first-class educational programme created by our members and international experts. It will feature a wide range of engaging sessions, experts’ debates, and education and learning activities such as abstracts, workshops, tutorials, Master Courses and more, within the five cancer control tracks:

Track 1 - Stemming the tide: innovations in prevention and screening

Track 2 - Closing the gap: quality cancer treatment and diagnosis for all

Track 3 - Improving patient and family experiences

Track 4 - Strengthening cancer control: optimising outcomes of health systems

new! Track 5 - Empowering civil societies: building capacity for change
