The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) has formed a partnership with the World Economic Forum to create ‘C/ Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge’, to address the urgent need to move political commitments made at the global level into fully functional, comprehensive cancer solutions, which can reach the majority of the world’s population.
