UICC Members Awards - Call for Applications

WCD Spirit Award - 2018 WCC

Due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and the disruption to travel and social gatherings into 2021, UICC has decided to call off the World Cancer Congress planned for March 2021 in Oman.

To recognise the extraordinary efforts and the work of UICC members, awards in two categories – Best CEO and Best World Cancer Day Spirit – will be given. Categories for Best Advocacy with Impact, Best Public-Private Initiative, Best Patient Group Pavilion Case Study, Best Scientific Abstract and Best Global Village Stand, which are directly related to the World Cancer Congress, will be celebrated at a future Congress.  

UICC launched its call for applications for a new series of UICC Members Awards. UICC members submitting an abstract or a case study for the Patient Group Pavilion are eligible for an award nomination. 

In order to achieve our collective goals for global cancer control, we need to learn from the remarkable leaders, patients, campaigners, advocates and fundraisers from across our member community.

That is why UICC is seeking to recognise outstanding achievement and innovative practices across its membership.
