After an inspiring and memorable event in Melbourne in December 2014, UICC and its host organisations, the French League Against Cancer (La Ligue contre le Cancer) and the Alliance of African & Mediterranean French Speaking Leagues Against Cancer (ALIAM), look forward to staging the 2016 World Cancer Congress in the ‘City of Lights’ – Paris, France – from 31st October to 3rd November 2016 at the Palais des congrès.

WHAT IS THE WORLD CANCER CONGRESS ?

The World Cancer Congress is the the leading platform for the exchange of best practice in cancer implementation science and a key networking opportunity for the global cancer and wider health community.
Held every two years in a different country by a UICC member organisation, the event is run by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), and centres around an inspiring theme pertinent to the cancer and global health agenda.

With the inclusion of cancer and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the post-2015 development agenda, the 2016 World Cancer Congress theme, ’Mobilising action – Inspiring change’, will provide an even more opportune platform for Congress delegates to build on this momentum and continue to expand their scope of influence and action for the successful implementation of these global commitments in their own settings.
