UICC reviews its long-term strategic ambitions every four years. It maps out the implementation through a rolling three-year business plan guided by successive Boards of Directors. This document covers the period 2023-2025.

Ultimately, UICC wishes to contribute positively to a world in which no-one dies from a preventable cancer, and those who have cancer have access to quality treatment and care.
