Become a partner

Becoming a UICC partner is a valuable opportunity for an organisation to expand its global impact on cancer control and to address Sustainable Development Goal 3, to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”.

Supporting UICC's priority mission activities

UICC partners are encouraged to support UICC’s priority mission activities which comprise the essential work that UICC must do in order to support and unite its members to reduce the cancer burden, promote greater equity, and ensure that cancer remains a priority on the global health and development agenda.

These activities include: 

  • Bringing together and facilitating connections between UICC members
  • Engaging with UICC members through the UICC Connect virtual platform  
  • Ensuring that UICC represents the cancer community at global health and development meetings
  • Ensuring that UICC members can become or continue to be a UICC member
  • Developing, publishing, and contributing to scientific publications
  • Supporting members with high quality communication content

UICC partners who additionally wish to support a specific area of UICC’s work can do so in one of UICC’s four programmatic pillars:

Pillar 1 includes UICC’s learning and development activities, its initiatives to facilitate access to knowledge, networks and resources, as well as its efforts to build a more resilient, sustainable, and influential cancer community. This also includes working with patient groups.

Pillar 2 covers a wide range of programmes, including UICC’s work on improving equity across the cancer care continuum, investing in women’s cancers, and promoting the meaningful engagement of people living with cancer.

Pillar 3 supports the development of national cancer control plans and registries.  UICC advocates for increased funding for cancer control and for the availability of cancer diagnostics, technologies, and medicines.

Pillar 4 comprises UICC’s research and policy contributions on risk factors such as tobacco control, air pollution, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV).
