INCTR 2010 Annual General Assembly/10th Anniversary

The INCTR 2010 annual meeting will be held on the 10th anniversary of the opening of the INCTR’s Brussels office, which is the headquarters of the organization, and will include presentations relating to INCTR’s ongoing projects as well as a number of discussions concerning global cancer control and INCTR’s immediate and longer term strategic initiatives. Ongoing projects in Asia, Latin America and Africa are designed to identify important problems that have a negative impact on patient care, or to immediately improve patients services while providing “on-the-job” training and building a foundation of evidence on which to base future progress. Meeting participants will include representatives of the World Health Organization and the Program of Action against Cancer of the International Atomic Energy Agency, with which INCTR has strong links. Of course, representatives from our offices and branches (France, U.K., USA, Nepal, India, Brazil, Egypt, Tanzania and Cameroon) will also be present. We also plan to invite a small number of guests to assist us in our deliberations.

One of INCTR’s major goals for 2010 is to increase the size of our faculty, which is comprised largely of professional volunteers, and a to develop more partnerships with universities and cancer centers to provide continuing education to health professionals in developing countries while participating in the training of more cancer specialists. Needless to say, we plan to use e-learning and videoconferencing as much as possible. We have already been approached by a number of Universities interested in assisting in training and education, as well, in some cases, as the conduct of research.

Agenda

Associate members are welcome to attend the meeting, but we regret that we are unable to provide funding to support costs of attendance.
