About this Event
Treatment for All Workshop Nigeria
I am delighted to invite you to the Nigeria Treatment for All Workshop scheduled to hold in Abuja, from 7-8 October, 2019, convened through a partnership between the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and the Nigerian Cancer Society.
Treatment for All Is the name of a new, bold and inspiring advocacy campaign to drive national action from global cancer commitments. It is an inspiring advocacy initiative run by UICC. It calls on the international cancer community to address the global equity gap in access to cancer services by getting behind four essential pillars of cancer treatment and care:
1. Improving the quality of cancer data for public health use
2. Increasing the number of people with access to early detection and accurate cancer diagnosis
3. Providing timely and quality treatment for early and metastatic disease for all
4. Providing basic supportive and palliative care service for all.
It would be recalled that Nigerian Cancer Society was chosen as one of the 17 NGOs among over 100 organisations from more than 50 countries that expressed an interest to take national action and engage meaningfully with various stakeholders in the implementation of national Treatment for All campaigns throughout the world.
The selected organizations are being supported by UICC to form effective coalitions in their various countries to execute Treatment for All campaigns in a collective effort to reduce the cancer burden and improve patient outcomes.
The Treatment for All’ workshop builds on the commitments of the 2017 cancer resolution, and would formulate a unique Nigerian advocacy agenda for cancer control to be implemented effective from World Cancer Day 2020 (the day earmarked for National Activation of the campaign globally).
