The War on Cancer Asia Summit is part of our global initiative to catalyse fresh debate and drive progress in cancer control. The event will gather a diverse audience from the medical, practitioner, and provider communities, together with policymakers, patients, advocates, NGOs and civil society. We will examine the state of play of National Cancer Control Plans across Asia, explore best practices and areas for improvement, and create a manifesto for accelerated action and change. 


Patient groups are beginning to emerge across Asia, and patient advocacy is starting to find its voice. Against the backdrop of a rising cancer burden and increasing demand for quality care, the summit will aim to accelerate the pace of patient advocacy across the region to drive better care and policy. We will draw on case studies showing effective collaboration among advocacy groups, and between advocacy groups and policymakers. The summit will explore where working together has transformed policies and practices in prevention, early detection, treatment and care. We will also examine the potential pitfalls as we place these examples in the regional context. 


A mantra on the role of advocacy in modern health care systems asserts: “No decision about me, without me.” Our mission is to create a workable vision that points the way towards making this mantra a reality for cancer care in Asia. Join us and add your support.
