Message from UICC President,
Prof. Tezer Kutluk

Leaving behind another year and getting ready for the next is always an exciting moment for me. We have had a successful 2014 with excellent results, impactful activities, great teamwork and increased cooperation and engagement with you, our members. 

Last December, I had the honour of being elected as UICC President by the General Assembly. I view my presidency as a privilege and I am humbled to hold such an esteemed office for such a wonderful organisation.

This is my first official message to all of you and I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my commitment and passion to work in collaboration and building partnerships focusing on impact and cost effective delivery. To this end, I have four personal ambitions for my two-year mandate and I am proud to share them with you:

  • First, my new Board of Directors and I, will continue to take UICC forward as a membership organisation to help increase the impact on cancer globally. To do so, we will draw our inspiration from our Purpose Statement:

    “We unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda”
  • Secondly, I would like to reach out to all member organisations across the world to encourage collaborative...



UICC looks forward to continuing work with all of you in 2015 to encourage global leaders to honour cancer control commitments, to support their implementation, and to monitor progress at the national level. 


We look forward to continue to empower all our partners through our global convening platforms such as the 2015 World Cancer Leaders' Summit that will be held on 18 Nov in Istanbul and the 2016 World Cancer Congress which will take place from 31 Oct to 3 Nov in Paris.
