World Cancer Congress
The World Cancer Congress (WCC) is a recognised international conference which encourages effective knowledge transfer and best practices exchange amongst 3,500 cancer control and public health experts from 150 countries.
It aims to strengthen the participants’ action and impact on national, regional and international scales through a multidisciplinary programme that features the latest successful interventions in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
The World Cancer Congress is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) - which was recognised with Membership Engagement Award - and supports the organisation’s purpose statement ’to unite the cancer community, reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and integrate cancer into the world’s health and development agenda’.
It takes place every two years in a different country and is hosted by a local member of UICC.
