Background documents

Media are invited to download background resources on UICC and World Cancer Day here.

World Cancer Day has given us the wonderful opportunity, to join forces with other related NGO’s locally and bring forward important messages about prevention, early detection as well as our valuable work in palliative care. Our campaign, that was unfolded both at an above the line (mass media) and below the line level (events), allowed both a wide reach but at the same time brought us one step closer to younger audiences and interact with them face-to-face.
