A MAJOR EVENT IN THE GLOBAL CANCER CONTROL AGENDA
It aims to strengthen the participants' action and impact on national, regional and international scales through a multidisciplinary programme that features the latest successful interventions in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
“The 2018 World Cancer Congress enabled the cancer community to develop new collaborations, share practical case studies and learn from top experts in all aspects of cancer control. We were able to share knowledge and interact with colleagues from around the world, gaining new perspectives on what we, as a community, can do to reduce the cancer burden over time.”
– Delegate via 2018 WCC Survey
The World Cancer Congress is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) - which was recognised with Membership Engagement Award - and supports the organisation's purpose statement 'to unite the cancer community, reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and integrate cancer into the world's health and development agenda'.
It takes place every two years in a different country and is hosted by a local member of UICC.
