World Cancer Congress

10 members of various CSF associations attended the World Cancer Congress in Paris. Here is an extract from an email sent to us by UICC:

Thank you for making the 2016 World Cancer Congress such a success

Year-on-year we strive to deliver a bigger and better Congress than the last, with the 2016 edition being our best yet. With greater attendance and programmatic elements than ever before, we would like to thank everyone who played a key part in its success story - especially the Congress speakers, committees, sponsors and exhibitors.

Powerful and memorable

On 31 October, the President of France, François Hollande, Her Majesty the Queen of Spain and other influential leaders opened the Congress setting the tone for an inspiring and memorable week ahead in Paris. All opening speeches are now available on the Congress website.
