Event Overview
Welcome message:

The World Cancer Congress (WCC) is a recognised international conference which encourages effective knowledge transfer and best practices exchange amongst 3,500 cancer control and public health experts from 150 countries.

 

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 Congress was awarded 'Best Conference Development' at the 2016 International & European Associations Awards and 'Best use of social media' at the 2017 Association Excellence Awards.


The World Cancer Congress is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) -  which was recognised with Membership Engagement Award - and supports the organisation's purpose statement 'to unite the cancer community, reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and integrate cancer into the world's health and development agenda'.


It takes place every two years in a different country and is hosted by a local member of UICC.

Speakers/Faculty:

Dr. Sanjeev Arora, US

Dr Arora is the Founder & Director of Project ECHO, and the distinguished Professor of Medicine with tenure in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Medicine.

 

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) dramatically improves both capacity and access to specialty care for rural and underserved populations by linking expert inter-disciplinary specialist teams with primary care clinicians through teleECHO™ clinics, in which the experts mentor primary care clinicians to help them manage their patient cases and share their expertise via mentoring, guidance, feedback and didactic education. This helps rural clinicians develop knowledge and self-efficacy so they can adopt research findings and deliver best practice care for complex and chronic health conditions.

 

Dr Arora will explore the applicability of the ECHO model to cancer control, and how the initiative could contribute in achieving universal health coverage.
