The 2018 World Cancer Leaders' Summit will be held on the 1st of October at the Grand Hyatt Hotel of Kuala Lumpur, in conjunction with the 2018 World Cancer Congress.

Through its theme 'Cancer Treatment for All', next year's Summit will focus on raising the profile of cancer treatment and care in view of delivering the NCD global targets and reducing the number of premature deaths caused by cancer globally.

As such, it builds on the successful discussions that took place at the 2017 Summit in Mexico City. The high-level policy forum attracted 350 global cancer and public health leaders to discuss the prominent role cities can play in improving access to quality cancer services for their citizens. 

As an immediate outcome of the event, the National Cancer Institute of Mexico, and 2017 Summit host, has officially been appointed to coordinate the development and implementation of a sustainable national cancer control plan.
