The UICC is undertaking a review of its capacity building programmes globally through a newly created Capacity Building Portfolio.
This is an important step and one that will ensure UICC programmes are not only contemporary but also targeted to meet the emerging needs of cancer control organisations and contribute to the development of cancer control at a country level.
Accordingly, the APCASOT Fellowships will not be offered in 2017 while plans are developed and a new suite of capacity building programs are prepared for launch in 2018.
Cancer Councils in Australia will continue to be engaged in the development of regional capacity building initiatives with UICC and are committed to ongoing investment in the region.
