|Description||In 2016, more than 3’500 cancer experts will travel to Paris to discuss the latest cancer trends and projections, learn about best practices in science implementation and meet their peers from around the world.
Since 2011, our World Cancer Congresses have been known for providing great intellectual and social interaction for the participants.
What is there for me?
Lots...a wide-ranging programme will be designed in collaboration with UICC’s members and partners, and will expose the Congress participants to a large choice of sessions, interactive debates, workshops, capacity building schemes within the five cancer control tracks:
1. Stemming the tide: innovations in prevention and screening?
2. Closing the gap: quality cancer treatment and diagnosis for all
3. Improving patient and family experiences
4. Strengthening cancer control: optimising outcomes of health systems
New - 5. Empowering civil societies: building capacity for change?
For the first time this year, a fifth track called Empowering civil societies: building capacity for change? will complete the programme. The track will feature specific sessions for individuals or organisations, with the objective to increase NGOs’ effectiveness and performance and enable them to successfully respond to fast changing economic conditions, new stakeholders behaviours, political and regulatory challenges and technological trends.
The Congress participants will also be able to enjoy the Congress’ most popular features: the Global Village, abstracts presentations, throught-provoking debates, insightful workshops and the traditional Master Courses - to name a few!
