Union for International Cancer Control

UICC has just launched a new fellowship offer tailored to sharing advances in health services across Africa.

The African Cancer Fellowships are open to individuals working in any area across the cancer continuum who are working to improve current services; scale up access to services locally, nationally or regionally; or test implementation of new services or solutions.
Awardees will be given the opportunity to benefit from peer-to-peer exchange and information sharing, allowing them to learn and disseminate specific skills and knowledge relevant to cancer care within their organisations and region.

Examples of projects could include (not an exhaustive list):

  • Community health awareness interventions
  • Skills training for community health workers or cancer society volunteers
  • Introducing cancer content into general nursing curricula
  • Improving pharmaceutical supply chains
  • Enabling nurses to lead cervical cancer screening programs
  • Implementing palliative care services or social support
  • Enhancing national cancer registry services
  • Development of cancer information services
