Topics/Call fo Papers

5th International Cancer Control Congress (ICCC5) to be held in Lima, Peru from November 3 ? 6, 2013.
The United Nations have called on all nations to reduce the impact of non-communicable diseases, including cancer, by 25% by 2025. All are aware that NCDs currently account for >60% of all deaths worldwide, that cancer accounts for 13% of deaths worldwide and that the burden of cancer and NCDs will continue to increase without concerted strategic intervention.
Building on the success of previous ICCCs, the theme of the 2013 congress ‘International Collaboration’ will underpin the need for collaboration and cooperation in implementing cancer and non-communicable disease control strategies worldwide. The Conference is the perfect forum to foster collaborations, networks and relationships to transfer knowledge to enhance cancer/NCD control; to learn, share and problem-solve through discussions amongst delegates from diverse cultural and contextual settings. We encourage the participation of individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds including physicians, nurses and other health care professionals; policy makers, researchers, scientists, patients, advocates and those interested in any aspect of cancer/NCD control.
We hope you will join us in Lima, the beautiful capital of the Republic of Peru, where you can enjoy its historical center with beautiful colonial churches and mansions; as well as its modern site with its suburbs offering a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Or you might want to take a couple of extra days and enjoy an amazing journey to the center of the world Cusco with its beautiful surroundings and Inca ruins, followed by a leisurely train ride to the enigmatic citadel of Machu Picchu ? one of the most amazing urban creations of the Inca Empire at 2,430m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest.
We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring, educational and enjoyable program in Lima, Peru with the intent of addressing the global challenge of NCDs and cancer together.
With warm regards,
