UICC members regional meetings

The UICC members regional meetings are dedicated platforms for UICC members to discuss new approaches and practices at regional levels, in line with the Congress' capacity building and educational objectives.

The UICC member regional meetings in Kuala Lumpur will focus on ‚Äėhow to leverage the expertise and potential of collaboration amongst UICC members‚Äô.

To inform discussions, we are seeking to map existing collaborations around the globe through a call for collaborative initiatives. The resulting collection of initiatives will be made available to members and will serve as a basis to guide discussions at each regional meeting.

With a variable length from 60 to 120 minutes, six regional meetings will take place according to the following geographical distribution:

  • Africa
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Eastern Mediterranean
  • Europe, including the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)
  • Latin America and the Caribbean
  • North America and Global Collaborations

The UICC Asia-Pacific regional meeting is proudly supported by

UICC members from all regions were invited to enter our call for collaborative initiatives, which is now closed. 

The best two examples will be selected to be presented at the corresponding UICC member regional meeting.

Collaborative initiatives

Defined as 'two or more organisations working together towards a shared goal', collaborative initiatives can be national, regional or global. To be eligible, collaborative initiatives must be

  • relevant to cancer control
  • conducted by at least one UICC member
  • ongoing or concluded in the past two years (after January 2016)
The Collaboration Award

Additionally, by submitting their example of effective collaboration, UICC members automatically entered the competition to be selected to receive the UICC Collaboration Award.

The Award aims to recognise innovative examples of collaborations between civil society organisations working together at a national, regional or international level to address a fundamental gap in cancer control.

The Award Ceremony will be taking place during the UICC General Assembly on Congress day 2 - Tuesday 2 October.

Regional Leads

To spread the word and support engaging civil society organisations from each region, we count with a group of members who kindly endorsed the initiative.
