Chris Lewis to represent simPal at the World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Chris said “it’s a great honour to be attending the World Cancer Congress this year on behalf of simPal. Mobile communication is used across the entire globe and we feel this is something that is taken for granted. I am excited to not only speak about my personal life, living with cancer, but to discuss key developments our charity is making in the UK and our vision to expand our services internationally in the foreseeable future”
The World Cancer Congress (WCC) is a recognised international conference which encourages effective knowledge transfer and best practices exchange amongst 3,500 cancer control and public health experts from 150 countries. It aims to strengthen the participants' action and impact on national, regional and international scales through a multidisciplinary programme that features the latest successful interventions in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
The WCC is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) - which was recognised with Membership Engagement Award - and supports the organisation's purpose statement 'to unite the cancer community, reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and integrate cancer into the world's health and development agenda'.
It takes place every two years in a different country and is hosted by a local member of UICC.
The National Cancer Society of Malaysia is honoured to host the very first World Cancer Congress in South East Asia – to be held from 1 to 4 October 2018 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
