REGISTER FOR THE EVENT
Think globally, mentor locally.
ICEC envisions a world in which everyone
has access to intervention that prevents and
treats cancer and its symptoms, using best
practices for providing high-quality services.
The World Health Organization global status report (2010) and a related United Nations declaration (2012) brought attention to the rapidly growing burden of non-communicable diseases in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC).
Globally, cancer is a growing and progressively urgent problem from medical, health system, business, work force, economic and ethical perspectives. The case burdens are increasing in LMICs and also in rural underserved areas in resource-rich countries, and by various measures outcomes are significantly worse than in high-income countries and regions.
ICEC Programs and Committees are now underway. Information is posted regarding opportunities and expectations for participation, the application process and other operational information.
