The Young Leaders programme is a unique opportunity to be part of a global network of inspiring and ambitious young leaders in cancer control. It aims to nurture aspiring young cancer control professionals to become successful leaders in cancer control and the wider global health community.

UICC is encouraging mid-career cancer control professionals, who have contributed to progress in cancer control in their country or region and are motivated to expand their influence to drive impact globally, to apply for the 2023-24 cycle of its Young Leaders programme.

Up to 10 participants will be selected to learn more about global cancer control, work on projects involving priority topics in cancer, and attend UICC’s two flagship international events: the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit and World Cancer Congress.
