UICC provides a unique gateway for accessing the evidence base, best practices and technical knowledge for effective cancer control.

Whether through its reputed  resources and publications, multi-partner initiatives, leading journals, its well-established programmes or latest platforms for knowledge exchange, UICC leverages expertise across its networks for the benefit of the global cancer community.

Thanks to these opportunities for sharing knowledge, the cancer community can understand the global burden of cancer, learn about the principles of cancer staging, access latest findings in cancer care and resources for cancer control planning, as well as benefit from tailored advice through dedicated knowledge exchange programmes.

UICC's Virtual Dialogues provide members and the cancer community with regular opportunities to connect, exchange knowledge, access expert insights and share solutions through virtual conversations.
