Fostering an influential cancer community with the skills, knowledge, networks and resources to achieve effective cancer prevention and control.
Through its tailored initiatives, programmes and platforms, UICC provides its members with opportunities to build their skills, learn from experts, share experiences with like-minded organisations and benefit from seed funding for their projects.
UICC harnesses the expertise of the global cancer community and its own experience of delivering learning and development opportunities for more than 50 years to respond to its members’ needs and maximise their impact in their own regions.
The UICC’s learning and development opportunities for members tackle a wide range of interdisciplinary areas and topics, including organisational leadership, national advocacy and patient engagement. Processes and modes of support are designed to best suit the different programmes and initiatives to ensure their relevance and accessibility: organisational or individual, virtual or in-person, cohort-based or on-demand.
UICC’s online learning offer has evolved over the years and now includes a dedicated eLearning platform, which hosts a range of self-paced and cohort-based online courses.
