Considering the success and positive feedback received for World Cancer Congress 2022, the UICC Board has decided that the next edition in 2024 will also be held at the International Conference Centre of Geneva, Switzerland, from 17 to 19 September 2024, near the UICC office. This will allow participants to benefit once again from the proximity of WHO and other major health organisations with whom UICC entertains close relations.

Once again, the UICC World Cancer Congress played its core role of convening and uniting the cancer and NCD communities, and drive progress in reducing the global burden of cancer through the power of knowledge sharing and collective action.
