Through its theme 'Cancer¬†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 reducing¬†the number of premature deaths caused by cancer globally.
As such, it builds on the successful discussions that took place at the 2017 Summit¬†in Mexico City. The high-level policy forum attracted 350 global cancer and public health¬†leaders to discuss the prominent¬†role cities can play in improving access to quality cancer services for their citizens.¬†
As an immediate¬†outcome of the event, the National Cancer Institute of Mexico, and 2017 Summit host, has¬†officially been appointed to coordinate the development and implementation of a¬†sustainable¬†national cancer control plan.
Don't miss out the opportunity to influence the course of cancer in your country. Start planning¬†your attendance¬†to the 2018 Summit and the subsequent 2018 World Cancer Congress¬†now as the official registration for the Congress has¬†opened.¬†
