Engagement opportunities

"Concurrent sessions were loaded with many topics of interest, the challenge was the choice". 

– Delegate via 2018 WCC Survey

The Congress programme is drawn from the contribution of the global cancer community. There are six ways to contribute to the 2020 programme (see chart below). The whole process is overseen by our appointed Programme Committee. 

The 2020 theme "The way forward" sets the tone of the Congress to serve as a platform for the cancer control and NCD communities to advance in the right direction. 

Whether you are an experienced oncologist, a dedicated cancer researcher, an inspirational caregiver, a committed volunteer representing a patient support group, an employee of a cancer society, a fundraiser or the General Director of a hospital, get involved, raise your voice, submit a proposal and support us in shaping a comprehensive and inspiring Congress Programme.
