C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge presented by Professor Sanchia Aranda, Australian President of Union for International Cancer Control
May 1, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In this exclusive MPCCC lecture, Prof Sancia Aranda, CEO, Cancer Council Australia and President, Union for International Cancer Control, will discuss the opportunities and potential involvement of MPCCC partners in the Union for International Cancer Control’s (UICC) C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge.
The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites the cancer community in the fight against the global cancer burden. There are over 1,000 member organisations partnering to promote greater equity and advocating for cancer control in more than 160 countries.
UICC is spearheading an ambitious new challenge to support cities to accelerate equitable access to quality cancer services: C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge
C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge is engaging all city stakeholders in the design, planning and implementation of cancer care solutions, meeting the urgent need to move beyond political commitments made at the global level, to improve access to essential cancer medicines and technologies.
The global target for a 25% reduction in premature deaths from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by 2025 has been a call to mobilise community and nations around the world. However, focusing on NCD risk factors alone will not reduce cancer mortality rates by 2025. Improving access to quality cancer care is critical.
