Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)

The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is a membership organisation that exists to help the global health community accelerate the fight against cancer.

Founded in 1933 and based in Geneva, UICC’s growing membership of over 760 organisations across 155 countries, features the world’s major cancer societies, ministries of health, research institutes and patient groups. Together with its members, key partners, the World Health Organisation, the World Economic Forum and others, UICC is tackling the growing cancer crisis on a global scale.

UICC is governed by its member organisations, which meet in a general assembly, held in conjunction with the World Cancer Congress, every two years. Between assemblies, a board of 17 directors, elected by the General Assembly, act as the executive body of UICC.
