Quotes from participants

About World Cancer Day

"It was a wonderful experience for us (staff and students at CPUT) and we have learnt a lot about how to offer such activities in the future. We received very positive feedback and the activities were a success in many aspects...You will see that we used the World Cancer Day materials - sincere thanks for that.”
About the World Cancer Congress 2018

“The World Cancer Congress 2018 enabled the cancer community to develop new collaborations, share practical case studies and learn from top experts in all aspects of cancer control. We were able to share knowledge and interact with colleagues from around the world, gaining new perspectives on what we, as a community, can do to reduce the cancer burden over time.”
