Message from the President

Welcome to the 2016 Annual Report for the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). It has been my honour to be the President of UICC during 2016 until I handed over the responsibility to Professor Sanchia Aranda at the end of a wonderful week in Paris in November when we organised the World Cancer Congress, World Cancer Leaders’ Summit and UICC General Assembly. This concluded a year of many achievements – many of which are covered in this report – some of which were particular highlights for me. We achieved the milestone of our membership base passing 1,000 for the first time in UICC’s history (some of you will know that the organisation was created in 1933 so this is an achievement of many years in the making) and the engagement of our members is better than it has ever been. This means that everything we do can be amplified around the world through our growing network of enthusiastic members.

2016 UICC Annual Report

World Cancer Day reached new heights of coverage across all media. Our advocacy messages reached more ministries of health. Our commitment to support members in low- and middle-income countries expanded through our new capacity building offer which was again augmented in November through the launch of the CEO Programme. Perhaps the most pleasing result of the year happened at the very beginning. In 2009, the International Diabetes Federation approached UICC and the World Heart Federation to create the NCD Alliance. In 2010, having also engaged the Union for Lung Disease and Tuberculosis, we set out a shared ambition to place noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) on the global health and development agenda. The final puzzle piece was put in place in January when the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) officially came into force, with NCDs included in SDG3 (Good health and wellbeing). Having personally been involved in so many United Nations meetings where we have advocated for NCDs to be included, I consider this to be a major step forward for cancer and the other NCDs, which were not included in the Millennium Development Goals. I really believe that

in the next few years national and international focus will be set appropriately on cancer and the other NCDs giving us all increased confidence that we will make progress against these diseases. May I thank the Board of UICC for their enthusiastic commitment to the role they perform for UICC members. Mary Gospodarowicz and Sanchia Aranda have been invaluable in guiding me as the President and Cary Adams, our CEO, and his team have delivered week after week to the highest quality and always with a smile on their faces.

Tezer Kutluk President Union for International Cancer Control


Message from the CEO

I would consider 2016 to be another year of progress for UICC and its community of members and partners. As Tezer noted, we have passed 1,000 members but we also benefitted from more than 50 partnerships with organisations and companies who share our ambition to unite the cancer community, address inequality and put cancer on the global health and development agenda. It was also a year in which we ran a World Cancer Congress, which places us all under some increased pressure at UICC. My thanks to all the individuals and organisations who worked to ensure that all the events in Paris were successful. More than 3,250 delegates attended the Congress, up from 2,700 in Melbourne in 2014. Participants’ feedback has been outstanding and we are inspired to take all the learning to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the next edition in October 2018.

2016 UICC Annual Report

We leave 2016 with some significant events planned for 2017. Not only do we expect a Cancer Resolution to be passed at the World Health Assembly in May, but we will be rolling out the C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge in cities around the world. Launching the initiative with our partners at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2017 is, without doubt, a major statement that we are serious about helping countries address the growing burden of cancer they face - particularly in lowand middle-income countries where the burden will be highest in the coming decades. As in previous years, UICC received a positive audit report and concluded the year in a strong financial position. We were able to increase the size of the team in Geneva, and on the basis of our diligent approach to funding, we will be moving offices in Geneva in 2017 to accommodate the new staff and provide space for the NCD Alliance and the C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge 2025 teams.

I hope you enjoy this report. The work covered could not have been delivered without our members and partners, and of course, the UICC team who have worked diligently with the Board to ensure that we have the impacts we aspire to. Finally, I would like to give my sincere and personal thanks to Mary Gospodarowicz who left the UICC Board at the General Assembly in Paris in November. Mary sat on the Board, and before that the Governing Council, for many years and has without doubt been a major force in creating the UICC we so proudly work for today. I speak for everyone in my team who wish her the very best, although we suspect she will still carry the badge of UICC everywhere she goes.

389 2016 UICC Annual Report



1,016 6


UICC has had its most successful year for membership growth and engagement, signing up 112 new Full and Associate members and closing the year with the milestone of 1,016 members in 162 countries, a 13% increase since 2015. With eight additional countries represented, UICC continues to work actively to have a member in every country and to further increase the diversity of our membership with more national cancer societies and research institutions. Importantly, in 2016 UICC witnessed increased engagement from our members in all our key convening activities. Over 50% of the membership base made the journey to Paris to participate in the World Cancer Congress (up from 34% in 2014) and 80% of our members participated in World Cancer Day in February 2017. The voting members at the General Assembly increased from 90 in 2014 to 200 in 2016, highlighting an increased commitment from UICC members and the active role they play. We really feel that our members play a critical role in our work, our thinking and our ambitions.

2016 UICC Annual Report

Building on their success in 2014, the UICC Members Regional Meetings at the 2016 World Cancer Congress also provided a unique platform for networking, sharing best practices and facilitating collaborations amongst members from the same region. A short survey was conducted to assess the approach to increase engagement through the regional meetings. We were pleased that the average rating of the meetings was 8 out of 10, and that 100% of respondents felt that the content of the meeting was relevant to their own region. In addition, participants shared a common interest for expanding the UICC network within their respective regions and connecting at local events. We shall be working on this in future years.

UICC has been named as winner of the International & European Association Award for Membership Engagement, for its strategy 2016 - 2018. A sincere thanks to all our members who have contributed to UICC being acknowledged as a global leader in working with its membership.

Despite the complexity and diversity of its membership base, 2016 was a strong year for UICC successfully responding to members’ needs and expectations and in 2017 we will continue to deepen engagement as a priority through the insights of our members, and further reinforce a member-centric approach within all UICC activities.

“The Swiss Cancer League is proud to have joined forces with UICC as it has enabled us to network with the global cancer community, access capacity building opportunities, and advocate to drive progress for cancer control.� Kathrin Kramis-Aebischer, CEO, Swiss Cancer League


Partnerships Only working in partnership can we transform the cancer burden and the future we share. For the last six years, UICC has sought to establish long-term partnerships with organisations which share our ambition to improve cancer control globally. These partnerships have deepened as we have delivered consistently a range of events, activities and programmes together. We consider many of our partnerships to have matured into ones in which we aim to deliver shared value. Having strong partners has allowed us to explore different types of engagement and partnership avenues during 2016, expanding our reach to other networks, access to new funding sources and impacting the way we approach partnerships.

2016 UICC Annual Report

Reaching out to employees and more communities involved in the fight against cancer UICC’s Vanguard partner Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) launched an epic and truly exciting employee donation-matching campaign through a cycling event ‘Country to Country for Cancer – C2C4C’ where employees of the company completed a ride of over 4,000 km across Europe. The many kilometres they cycled helped raise funds and support UICC’s mission. The ride represented a powerful instrument in generating engagement and cross-community bonding across BMS employees, whilst supporting UICC’s work around the world.



Empowering and connecting cancer organisations from around the world

Moving from one-to-one partnerships to Industry partnerships

Many organisations do not have the resources to be connected to UICC’s networks and participate in its signature events. UICC’s long-standing partners MSD and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) have been able to help us address this gap by empowering and connecting these organisations with hundreds of others by sponsoring UICC membership and opening doors to UICC benefits such as capacity building, travel grants and opportunities to engage and connect at the global level.

For the last few years, UICC has developed a significant number of effective shared value relationships with international companies and organisations, working on areas of common interest. In 2016, we moved into a new paradigm - exploring opportunities that demand collective action. We have entered into a three-year partnership with 22 pharmaceutical companies, three leading radiotherapy companies, and two cancer treatment centre builders to support UICC’s new initiative C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge. This represents a major shift in the way we anticipate working with partners in future - identifying common challenges which can only be addressed through collective rather than bilateral action.

Bridging the divide between sectors and creating effective partnerships Thanks to the strong collaboration with Bupa, The Partnering Initiative (TPI) and the involvement of CEOs of leading UICC member organisations, UICC launched a partnering guidebook specifically designed to help cancer and non-communicable disease organisations to partner effectively with the private sector. The guidebook provides best practices and cases studies of how other organisations have partnered with businesses in ways which have had a positive impact on the health of various communities.

2016 UICC Annual Report

“At Astellas we have a social responsibility to improve access to better health for patients worldwide, and UICC has provided us with an international platform to achieve this. Being a Vanguard Partner has been extremely valuable in positioning us as a leading player in the global fight against cancer.” Peter Sandor, VP Global Oncology Strategy, Astellas



World Cancer Congress For the past few years we referred to the World Cancer Congress as an emerging success story in the global cancer control space. However, we are proud to report that it is now a recognised and established ‘must-attend’ cancer control event. In April, the Congress was awarded ‘Best Conference Development’ at the 2016 International & European Associations Awards acknowledging our efforts to contribute to more effective health and cancer strategies through best-practice sharing and an increasingly stimulating learning environment amongst a multicultural community. In November in Paris, the 2016 World Cancer Congress mobilised 3,260 participants from 139 countries, engaged 500 renowned speakers in 144 multidisciplinary sessions and overall there was a 16% increase in attendance by UICC membership. Hosted by the French League against Cancer and ALIAM, the event placed greater emphasis upon regional and patient perspectives, including a programme in French, sessions in Spanish and innovative capacity building schemes designed to enhance participants’ expertise, knowledge and More information

impact. Innovations such as the Meet’in Café and the Break-Ice-Fast, an inventive networking exercise for UICC members and partners, were extremely popular, as were the traditional Plenary sessions, Big Debates, Abstract presentations, Master Courses and the Global Village. High-level attendees included the President of France, François Hollande, Her Majesty the Queen of Spain and Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, HRH Princess Lalla Salma from Morocco, the First Ladies from Niger, Congo and Burkina Faso, and no less than nine ministers of health and six ambassadors from Europe, Africa and the Middle East – a first for the Congress. The next World Cancer Congress will take place in Kuala Lumpur on 1-4 October 2018. Visit for more info and take advantage of discounted registration rates in 2017.

UICC have been named as winners of the International Association Excellence Award for ‘Best use of social media’ for the 2016 World Cancer Congress campaign.

“The 2016 World Cancer Congress in Paris was yet another success, inspiring passionate leaders of the global cancer control community to bring forth a change at the national, regional and international levels. The American Cancer Society is honoured to continue our longstanding partnership with UICC and engage in their next signature convening events around the world.” Gary Reedy, CEO, American Cancer Society

“The World Cancer Congress is an important opportunity for the global cancer community to drive change in cancer care through collaborations and community engagement. At Pfizer, we are committed to our continued efforts to work with UICC, and a diverse group of stakeholders in the cancer community, to continue to fight cancer on a global scale.” Markus Kosch, Vice President Commercial Portfolio Management - Pfizer



World Cancer Day World Cancer Day 2016 was a truly astonishing milestone on many levels exceeding all expectations in engagement and visibility around the world. 2016 marked the first year of the new three-year ‘We can. I can.’ campaign, which reinforces the positive and action-oriented messaging about cancer and encourages the engagement of organisations and individuals in raising awareness and taking action. For the very first time, a global campaign entirely dedicated to social media was launched under the name ‘Talking Hands’ to raise awareness of the key World Cancer Day messages. Companies, cancer organisations and individuals from all over the world joined the movement so that over 13,000 creative pictures featuring supportive messages were shared.

With 17.9 billion opportunities to see, hear or read about the day, not only does World Cancer Day continue to grow in high-level figures, but its impact is increasing also. In 2016, over 900 events took place in 129 countries, and at least 20 national governments used the day as an opportunity to join the movement and contributed to adding real value to the cancer cause. These amazing results are helping World Cancer Day become one of the biggest global health days in terms of influence and awareness raising, and provides a positive outlook for the next two years as the ‘We can. I can’ campaign continues to unfold.

Partners With special thanks to the World Cancer Day campaign sponsors, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, No Hair Selfie, World Cancer Research Fund International, Amgen and Roche.

“World Cancer Day is a special day because people striving to end cancer unite and they recommit to this extremely important cause. By working together, we can all make a difference. We are proud to support World Cancer Day and help people with cancer to live better, longer lives.” Severin Schwan, CEO, Roche Group

Roche created a video which engaged employees and spread World Cancer Day key messages; the video was featured on their website and was also shared through YouTube. They also took engagement to the local level by having volunteers in three street booths in the three main cities of Tunisia. At these booths, employees handed out flyers in Arabic and French on how to change perceptions on cancer and promote healthier lifestyles. In conjunction with this event, a Roche representative got involved with local media by doing a radio interview about cancer.

World Cancer Leaders’ Summit Over 300 global health leaders from more than 60 countries gathered at the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit in Paris, France, on 31 October 2016.

In a powerful series of talks and panel discussions, the speakers highlighted specific organisational or personal experiences and factors crucial for success in our collective journey to reduce avoidable deaths caused by cancer by 2025.

Moderated by the award-winning journalist Baria Alamuddin, Summit participants discussed the global progress made in cancer prevention and control over the last seven years, and the pressing challenges that remain to deliver the global target of a 25% reduction in premature mortality from cancer and NCDs by 2025.

The event also marked the launch of the World Cancer Declaration Progress Report 2016, a collective effort from the 1,000-strong UICC membership, sharing unique civil society perspectives from 113 countries on national successes and major challenges that remain to address cancer in all countries.

In addition to an impressive line-up of speakers, which included ministers of health from Europe and Africa, prominent global health and development leaders contributed to a day of dynamic discussions and optimism including HRH Princess Lalla Salma from Morocco, the First Ladies of Burkina Faso, Niger and Congo and HRH Princess Dina Mired from Jordan; Ministers of Health of Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo, Cyprus, and Niger; the Minister of Population of Niger, Ministry representatives from France, Honduras, Mozambique, the Slovak Republic, Tunisia, UK, and Zambia; and the Ambassadors of Niger, Chad, Senegal, Congo.

The Summit was closed with a clear call to action, encouraging UICC members and partners to work together with their respective governments to ensure the development and adoption of a meaningful cancer resolution by the World Health Assembly that would stimulate and support national action on the journey to 2025.

2016 UICC Annual Report



C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge At the beginning of 2016, the UICC Board of Directors concluded that UICC should explore the possibility of uniting a coalition of organisations to help cities around the world improve the cancer treatment and care they provide to the citizens. The initiative became the C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge which brings together a coalition of committed organisations to help more than 500 cities with a population in excess of one million to improve cancer treatment and care by 2025. As we reached out to UICC partners and others, we were overwhelmed with the support and the commitments we received. Our approach resonated with the pharmaceutical and radiotherapy industries, the international professional cancer associations, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum and importantly, cities who recognized the enormous benefits the new coalition could bring in their desire to improve their cancer treatment and care capacity.

2016 UICC Annual Report

In January 2017, at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge was launched with our partners and we were delighted to announce the first three ‘key learning cities’ – Yangon (Myanmar), Cali (Colombia) and Asunción (Paraguay) – who will help us learn how to help cities improve cancer treatment and care in other cities around the world. It is early days for C/Can 2025, but the outlook is very positive. Cities around the world are becoming aware of the initiative and we anticipate that this new global coalition will make great strides in the next few years.

“There is an urgent need for multilevel stakeholder partnerships in response to a growing global cancer crisis. NCI is proudly partnering with UICC to support cities with populations of more than 1 million improve their capacity to address prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment at the city level.” Ted Trimble, Director, National Cancer Institute, US

“C/Can 2025 serves as a turning point for the global cancer community. For the first time, an international coalition of multisectoral organisations has been established to work at the city level to improve cancer treatment and care. Stemming from the radiotherapy industry, Varian is pleased to serve as a founding member of this outstanding initiative. It is important for all sectors to support city governments to show the world that together we can tackle this disease.” Dow R. Wilson, President and CEO, Varian Medical Systems


Promoting greater equity

It is clear from all the forecasts that the future burden of cancer will fall mostly on countries that are less able to cope with it. The International Agency for Resarch on Cancer (IARC) estimates that more than 70% of the growth in cancer incidence and mortality will occur in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the next two decades. If we are to turn the corner globally, then it is up to all of us to recognise that investing in the capabilities of the UICC cancer community in these countries is a global imperative. As global citizens we must help those communities least able to deal with the cancer burden they face. UICC has for many years supported individuals and organisations in LMICs, and in May 2016, with the full support of the UICC Board, we set out a renewed ambition to accelerate progress in these settings. Over the next few years, we will develop a suite of new training and education approaches purposed to meet regional needs. Each designed and delivered with and through our members addressing the stark inequities we know exist.

2016 UICC Annual Report


Capacity building

In 2016 UICC continued to offer its capacity building grants, awarding 60 UICC fellowships promoting cancer knowledge and technology transfer. Our 20 SPARC Metastatic Breast Cancer Challenge grantees made great progress in their projects this year, with over 3,100 patients directly engaged and 1,000 healthcare workers trained.

Regional offer

Expanding on UICC’s capacity building strategy, the World Cancer Congress was a platform to host a series of innovative sessions and targeted development initiatives, designed to empower individuals and organisations to better respond to today’s challenges and changing contexts.

Based on findings of the review, a pilot capacity building programme for francophone Africa was launched in Paris, to be followed by additional regional programmes at the 2017 World Cancer Leaders’ Summit in Mexico for Latin America, and at the 2018 World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur for Southeast Asia.

2016 UICC Annual Report

To better understand the capacity building and resourcing needs of our members in each region, more than 60 in-depth interviews were conducted and we reviewed existing activities in order to further develop relevant and sustainable programmes with a regional focus.


Capacity building

CEO Programme

Master Courses

Over 120 chief executive officers (CEOs) of cancer organisations joined the new UICC CEO Programme to meet their peers and learn from each other on topics such as sustainable funding models, strategic planning, organisational change, and more, creating a powerful and influential new leaders’ network in the UICC community.

More than 220 participants enrolled in continuing education by attending one of nine Master Courses that were run prior to the World Cancer Congress in Paris and covered topics such as project management for metastatic breast cancer initiatives, excellence in advocacy and implementing effective partnership, amongst others.

Participating CEOs were also invited to contribute to a guidebook on collaboration between nonprofit organisations and businesses. Given the enthusiasm generated and the positive feedback received, we can expect to see the UICC CEO Programme at the 2018 World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In the meantime, UICC will also organise regional CEO forums in Frenchspeaking Africa, Latin America, and South-East Asia, based on the specific needs of those regions.

The Master Courses were made available to registered delegates of the World Cancer Congress, run as distance learning modules concluding with a one day face-to-face workshop taking place the day before the Congress opened. Each course is purpose-built by internationally-recognised cancer control professionals helping those wishing to improve their core cancer control skills and competences.

“The CEO Programme is a terrific opportunity to provide support directly to patient groups who have an ambition to boost their efficacy in their home countries but lack some of the basic fundamental resources to do so. This year MSD joined UICC’s efforts to bring organisational and advocacy guidance to leaders of cancer organisations and to help them address today’s challenges in cancer control. UICC has been a key pioneer in supporting senior executives in sharing strategies to improve reach and impact within their own regions and we are proud to be the first sponsor of the CEO Programme at the 2016 Congress in Paris.” Charles Butcher-Global Policy Lead-Oncology, MSD

McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer In early 2017, the McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer will celebrate its 5th anniversary. It is the only centre of its kind in the world - whose work focuses and improves on the effective use of the law for cancer control – in essence, making the law work better to prevent cancer and help those affected by it. The dedicated team, which has grown to nine in Melbourne plus new colleagues based in Manila, Nairobi and Suva, have been relentlessly working to develop understanding and build capacity in the legal issues around cancer prevention, treatment, care and research. In 2016, one of the major battles continued to be implementing and defending tobacco packaging laws. The McCabe Centre team, led by Director Jonathan Liberman, has been central in providing guidance and expertise to governments around the world as they navigate the strong resistance from the global tobacco industry.

Their work on the frontier of law and cancer control has also sparked vital discussions on a range of policy actions, from international trade and investment aspects of food policy, to access to morphine for cancer pain relief, to support for people planning end-of-life care. UICC continues to work closely with the McCabe Centre team on these challenges as well as a number of successful initiatives, including international workshops and fellowship opportunities. We are proud that over 250 government, intergovernmental organisation and non-government representatives and academic experts from over 75 countries have participated in the McCabe Centre’s training and capacity building events. This collective work has been instrumental in supporting UICC’s priority area of promoting a global response to cancer.

The McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer is a joint initiative of:


Resources / Publications

Sharing knowledge and resources is a key role for UICC, either in the form of new research findings through our flagship journal the International Journal of Cancer, which maintains an impact factor of 5.5 under the leadership of Editor in Chief Peter Lichter, or sharing best practice for global cancer control through the Journal of Global Oncology in partnership with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and with Editor in Chief Gilberto Lopes. We also seek out and share best practice guidelines and toolkits on a range of cancer control disciplines through our website (www.uicc. org), the International Cancer Control Partnership portal ( and our various workshops and events that we run during the year. The International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP) is growing in strength, now encompassing 20 partner organisations that have contributed to a resource web portal with a refreshed design in 2016, content spanning 700+ materials and technical assistance for policy makers and cancer planners. The ICCP portal also maps progress in cancer planning, now featuring 180 national cancer plans and over 120 NCD plans, illustrating the significant progress against the 2011 United Nations High-level Meeting commitment that all countries should have an NCD plan.

2016 UICC Annual Report

The UICC TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, an international standard for cancer staging for more than 70 years, published its eighth edition in 2016. The six TNM e-learning modules developed in partnership with eCancer have been updated to include the eighth edition standards and a new lung cancer module. Underscoring the important role of staging at diagnosis for cancer surveillance and monitoring the effectiveness of early detection programmes, UICC has been working with the cancer registry community to integrate staging into standard practice, publishing a consensus paper on the anatomical extent of disease in paediatric cancers, as well as the Essential TNM Project, which involves developing a definition for collection of cancer stage data in low- and middle-income settings.


Delivering a challenging and impactful global agenda

2016 UICC Annual Report

As mentioned by our President Tezer Kutluk in his introduction to this report, 2016 was an important year concluding seven years of global advocacy undertaken with the NCD Alliance and UICC members around the world. On top of the commitments for NCDs secured in the United Nations system in previous years, our advocacy efforts ensured the inclusion of NCDs in the Sustainable Development Goals. In parallel, we received positive and encouraging support from enough countries to bring together a cancer resolution for the World Health Assembly which is due for adoption in May 2017. Together, these achievements give us the platform to encourage national governments to increase the profile of cancer in their health and development plans. A position we have sought for many years and which is embedded in our mission statement. Today, countries have targets to address cancer and the other NCDs. There is the Global Action Plan. Countries are held to account by WHO, and regular reviews take place at the United Nations in New York to assess progress with cancer and the other NCDs within the global health and development agendas.


World Cancer Declaration Progress Report In 2016 we issued the World Cancer Declaration Progress Report providing a unique civil society perspective on national successes and major challenges that remain to realise the nine visionary Declaration targets that were revised in 2013 by UICC and its membership. Reports from 113 countries, with contributions from 180 UICC members, are supported by a series of thematic pages highlighting resources and global initiatives led by UICC and its partners that can help members and countries advance progress against each target. The Report highlights key areas of progress including in cancer planning, surveillance, and risk factor reduction, as well as concerns shared by countries in all regions and income levels around delivering equitable access to diagnosis, treatment and care. Since its launch, the Report has been viewed online 2,000 times, and continues to be updated and enhanced with case studies from members.

“The Report represents an outstanding example of how UICC, through its 1,000 strong members, is able to provide a unique civil society perspective on national successes and major challenges that remain in meeting the World Cancer Declaration targets. As a cancer control and prevention focused organisation, WCRF International is particularly excited to have been able to provide input for this strategic report.� Kate Allen, Executive Director, Science & Public Affairs, World Cancer Research Fund International

World Health Assembly 2017 Cancer Resolution

In developing countries where the cancer burden is set to increase most rapidly, governments are urgently seeking best-practice guidance for implementation and scale-up of phased, feasible and quality national cancer control programmes. UICC’s side event at the May 2016 World Health Assembly, co-hosted with Jordan, Malaysia, Spain and Zambia, clearly articulated this concern, and concluded with a strong call from Member States for a long overdue update to the 2005 cancer resolution that would establish a clear framework for a health systems response for cancer. This was echoed in a call to action at the 2016 UICC General Assembly and World Cancer Leaders’ Summit held in Paris.

UICC was therefore very encouraged by the news that a Cancer Resolution would be included on the agenda of WHO’s January 2017 Executive Board Meeting in preparation for its formal adoption at the May 2017 World Health Assembly. In the lead-up to this, UICC will intensify efforts to ensure the adoption of a robust and comprehensive resolution by providing feedback on the emerging draft resolution texts, supporting member and partner outreach to ministries of health, and through direct outreach to Geneva-based health representatives. Once adopted, UICC will mobilise its members to ensure every country responds to the resolution’s call to action.

Strategic collaborations with organisations, networks and alliances

Recognising we can only accomplish our ambitions with significant collaboration with other organisations, the advocacy team has effectively built up strategic relationships with many other groups which we define as Organisations, Networks and Alliances (ONAs). These ONAs are invariably international in dimension and advocate integrating cancer control into the broader health agenda. In 2016 we focussed our collaborations in cancer control for child, adolescent and maternal health services. For example:

• Breast Cancer Initiative 2.5 launched national and institutional self-assessment tools to aid identification of bottlenecks in delivery of comprehensive breast health care services. Paediatric cancers are the focus of a new regional childhood cancer network in Latin America and the Caribbean, following a policy dialogue and regional mapping on the status of national childhood cancer plans and services. • NCD Alliance continues to gain and extend its impact, entering a new era as a standalone entity in 2017.

• Cervical Cancer Action launched an initiative calling for equitable access to cervical cancer prevention and treatment through scale-up of evidence-based and cost-effective human papillomavirus vaccination and cervical screening.

2016 UICC Annual Report


NCD Alliance

This past year has witnessed the dawn of a new era of sustainable development, with new opportunities and optimism for addressing global health and development challenges - such as NCDs - through more integrated and indivisible approaches. NCDs are no longer seen as a health issue in isolation collaboration is not only justified, it is vital. The NCD Alliance (NCDA) has been at the forefront of these shifting paradigms, armed with a new strategic plan for the next five years (20162020) that positions it to scale up action on NCD prevention and control. During this first year of the new strategic plan, the NCDA strengthened its position as a unique civil society network and the primary voice for NCDs at the global level, making important strides across all four strategic pillars of action, namely advocacy, accountability, capacity development and knowledge exchange.

Throughout 2016, NCDA continued to reinforce the instrumental role civil society plays in global health and NCDs, as well as demonstrated the power of alliances, at global, regional and national levels. As a result, over the last 12 months, more than seven national and regional NCD alliances have emerged, taking the total number to 52, with more being established month after month. Furthermore, steadfast in the belief that a vibrant and united NCD civil society movement is a key enabler for attainment of the 25x25 targets, NCDA has started rolling out a new capacity development programme. This delivery and impact as an alliance is only set to increase, as NCDA implements important governance changes from 2016 into 2017. These changes are geared to make NCDA more inclusive, strengthen its sustainability, and harness members’ and partners’ strengths and actions. By the middle of 2017, the NCD Alliance will be a registered NGO in Switzerland, signalling that its presence for the long haul, and with UICC’s ongoing and unwavering support.

“UICC has consistently proved to be a powerful uniting voice within the global health community, making cancer and NCDs a top priority for governments and ensuring that these issues are addressed as part of a larger global effort.” Anne Gagnepain-Lacheteau, My Child Matters Programme Director and Medical Director of the Sanofi Espoir Foundation

“UICC’s has been steadfast in its support of the NCD Alliance since its creation and we thank all UICC members for this.” José Castro, Chair, NCD Alliance

2016 UICC Annual Report


Financial performance

UICC concluded 2016 in a positive position. We worked to a balanced budget with all costs covered by income received during the year: a year in which we grew staffing levels and delivered the World Cancer Congress in Paris. During the last few years we have made significant efforts in diversifying our sources of income. In 2016, the membership dues, the contributions from partners for restricted activities and operations, the income for Congress and events, as well as royalties and publications continued to be our main income streams. All these sources strengthened, providing a solid and secure base to fund all our future planned activities and our core operations. We managed and controlled our costs in line with budgets throughout the year. Our main operational expense continued to be staff costs. We increased the staff headcount from 29 to 37 during the year recognizing our increased investment in the capacity building agenda and the C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge initiative.

2016 UICC Annual Report

Following approval from the UICC Board, the management team commenced the task to identify new offices for UICC in 2017. We aim to be closer to the World Health Organization, the United Nations and other international organisations having spent 17 years in offices some distance from all of these. The office move will take place in the second half of 2017. The team worked hard throughout the year to successfully deliver the business plan and complete all the planned activities in accordance with the requirements of the Board of Directors. Once again, we received a clean audit of our financial affairs from our auditors PwC. UICC continued to act as fiscal agent for the NCD Alliance. We are pleased to see that the Alliance has improved financially and we are committed to continue as the fiscal agent transitioning all responsibilities to the NCD Alliance when it launches as a standalone NGO in Geneva in 2017.

2016 UICC Annual Report


Board of Directors The Board of Directors governs UICC in accordance with the mandate given to it by the General Assembly of UICC members. It is empowered to provide leadership and strategic direction for all UICC activities. The Board is elected every two years by the General Assembly and the current Board has been in office since December 2016, when elections took place in Paris, France. The Board is composed of 17 outstanding and committed individuals, representing all spectrums of cancer control. All Board members serve in their own personal capacity and not as representatives of their respective organisations or countries.

2016 UICC Annual Report

In the last few years, the Board of Directors has spent time developing a new purpose statement and a long-term vision for UICC that has inspired the creation of the current business plan which runs from 2016 to the end of 2018. To complement this ambition, the Board has also reviewed and renewed the UICC Governance Framework to ensure that the way in which we operate supports the delivery of our long-term goals.

A new Board was appointed by the Full Membership of UICC in November in Paris at the General Assembly. At that time we said goodbye to some outstanding individuals who have served UICC so loyally and professionally as Board members for the period 2014-2016. We thank Harpal Kumar (UK), Richard Sullivan (UK), Xishan Hao (China), Tetsuo Noda (Japan), Anne Lise Ryel (Norway), Jamal Khader (Jordan) and Mary Gospodarowicz (Canada).

In 2016 the Board of Directors met three times (February, May and October). During the meetings and in between meetings their personal engagement is to be commended and we, the President and the CEO, take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all Board members for their on-going commitment and hard work.
