The 2018 Congress aims to provide a highly diverse and engaging programme which draws from the expertise of UICC Members and other international cancer and health professionals.

The programme of the Kuala Lumpur Congress will cover a wide range of cancer control issues, including topical themes that are pertinent to the South East region. Capacity building and training activities will also figure prominently within the agenda.

The themes and titles of the main programme streams will be announced early June 2017.


UICC Members and partners as well as the wider cancer community can contribute to the Congress programme through the submission of their sessions and/or abstract presentations.
