Cancer is a global disease

​The Dutch Cancer Society considers cancer as a global disease. Therefore we want to be involved in global cancer control: ‘together for less cancer burden worldwide’ is our motto. Its our vision to participate globally and to share expertise and experience we have acquired from nearly 65 years and to learn from other organizations as well. We prefer to collaborate with international oriented organizations like the Union for International Cancer Control(UICC), the International Cancer Research Partnership (ICRP), the Association of European Cancer Leagues(ECL) the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and many others.
