Through its theme 'CancerÂ Treatment for All', next year's Summit will focus on raising the profile of cancer treatment and care in view of delivering the NCD global targets and reducingÂ the number of premature deaths caused by cancer globally.
As such, it builds on the successful discussions that took place at the 2017 SummitÂ in Mexico City. The high-level policy forum attracted 350 global cancer and public healthÂ leaders to discuss the prominentÂ role cities can play in improving access to quality cancer services for their citizens.Â
As an immediateÂ outcome of the event, the National Cancer Institute of Mexico, and 2017 Summit host, hasÂ officially been appointed to coordinate the development and implementation of aÂ sustainableÂ national cancer control plan.
Don't miss out the opportunity to influence the course of cancer in your country. Start planningÂ your attendanceÂ to the 2018 Summit and the subsequent 2018 World Cancer CongressÂ now as the official registration for the Congress hasÂ opened.Â
