World Cancer Congress (WCC) is organized by Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and will be held from Oct 20 - 22, 2020 at Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, Muscat, Oman. Conference Description: It aims to strengthen the participants' action and impact on national, regional and international scales through a multidisciplinary programme that features the latest successful interventions in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. ‘The way forward’ is the theme for the 2020 World Cancer Congress, highlighting, quite importantly, the need for our region to work towards a future free from cancer. Networking opportunities and informative sessions will guide and inspire the region’s cancer control agenda, until the next Congress and beyond. The programme will be comprehensive and geared to address pressing issues in cancer control regionally and internationally, from prevention through to treatment and palliation. We intend to lay a solid foundation for knowledge exchange, best practices and experience-sharing and, pivotally, take a deep dive into the role and impact of advocacy and social enterprises in complimenting the work of the government and private sectors in driving a patient-centred strategy. Cancer doesn’t discriminate, affecting not only patients and their families, but also entire populations due to the spread of risk factors over one’s lifetime. Inter- regional understanding and collaboration is the best strategy in developing realistic international cancer control policies to not only effectively fight cancer but prevent it through advancements in early diagnosis and better pathways to what we all strive for: a cure. Congress Highlights: • Network and Creating Collaborations • Sharing Best Practices • Big Debates • Global Village • Meeting Experts Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
