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.

Although the Regional Meetings will not take place at the World Cancer Congress in 2021, UICC will continue to engage its Membership at the regional level through the newly launched Virtual Dialogues and other UICC activities throughout 2020.

The UICC Members Regional Meetings held at the World Cancer Congress are platforms dedicated to UICC members in order to share and discuss new approaches and practices in cancer control at regional levels, in line with the Congress' capacity building and educational objectives.

Regional Meetings focus on gathering insights from the cancer communities in each of the six regions to inform capacity building and other activities led by UICC and its partners/members. Building on the testimonies from beneficiaries from various programmes such as the Young Leaders, Cancer Advocates, Regional leadership in Action Meetings, SPARC Grantees and other programmes.

These interactive meetings will offer you with a unique opportunity to inform the regionalisation of UICC activities, to access more opportunities for collaboration with your peers and to network with the cancer community from your region.

To learn more about UICC activities in your region, please access the regional engagement pages on our website here.

Sharing Views, Building Communities

These interactive sessions tailored to UICC members will be held in the dedicated Room on “Strengthening skills & building communities for cancer control” as part of the Programme of the World Cancer Congress.

The Regional Meetings give members the opportunity to:

  • connect and collaborate with other members from the same region
  • share and learn about cancer control specificities in their region
  • showcase their work and engagement with UICC.
Who should attend?

The meetings are tailored to UICC members; however, they are also open to delegates interested in learning more about UICC’s network and how to engage as a member.

Six regional meetings will take place:

  • Africa
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Eastern Mediterranean
  • Europe
  • Latin America
  • North America

Opportunities to actively engage in the Regional Meetings will be announced in the coming weeks.
