      Campaign Manager at Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)


    The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) holds its annual initiative World Cancer Day on February 4. Global health, medicine and clinical research communities unite to raise awareness, improve education around cancer risks and emphasize the need for early diagnosis. Today, over 80% of all countries have a National Cancer Control Plan compared to just 66% in 2013.

    On World Cancer Day 2022, UICC Campaign Manager Janine Huguenin joins us to discuss the ambitious "Close the Care Gap" campaign, with plans to bring equity to cancer health for all. From celebrating real-word progress and building stronger alliances to mobilizing politicians, celebrities and friends, Janine is determined to shake up the system for lasting change.

    “We will just do more than spreading the word. We're going to shout it out from the rooftops. We are going to build stronger alliances and innovative new collaborations, and then it's really about mobilizing our friends, engaging our community. It's about rallying everyone we know behind this common cause.”
