ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL CANCER CONTROL PARTNERSHIP (ICCP)
The International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP), formed in November 2012, is a group of organizations whose members were already individually working to support country cancer control planning efforts. Now, these organizations work together on identified priorities to maximize their collective resources and avoid duplication of effort.
Download ICCP one-pager for an overview of the partnership and its activities and the executive summary of ICCP Strategic Plan 2018-2023. You can also consult a list of ICCP related publications, reports and blog posts written by the ICCP partners or mentioning the ICCP partnership and its portal.
The long-term outcome that the ICCP is working towards is that all countries have and are implementing a quality cancer control plan, which is linked to a country’s non-communicable disease (NCD) control efforts. The ICCP believes that prioritizing cancer is critical to reaching the NCD goal within Global Monitoring Framework on NCDs, the WHO Global Action Plan on NCDs and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
All countries have and are implementing an equity-oriented, person-centered, context appropriate NCCP.
The ICCP coordinates expertise and guidance to national cancer control planning stakeholders and decisionmakers in their efforts to develop, implement and evaluate data-driven, stakeholder-informed, and equity-oriented national cancer control plans. ICCP efforts are integrated and in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases including cancer.
The development of an effective population-based NCCP should address the social determinants of health, prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, palliative care and survivorship at all health system and societal levels (home, community and specialist care settings).
As a collaborative partnership, ICCP aims to support all countries in their response to the NCCP challenge in providing advice across the cycle of planning, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation including periodic assessment revision and adjustment.
The ICCP works to showcase opportunities and foster best practice partnerships across non-communicable diseases, build new synergies with existing health programmes and put high level NCD commitments into practice through:
- Advocacy at global and local levels
- Providing a one-stop-shop of best practice resources, including a tool for initiating plans and a searchable database of published NCCPs
- Addressing data gaps for stepwise development, phased implementation and scale up
- Responding to requests for technical assistance from low income countries
- Advocate that countries make cancer control a priority Use ICCP networks to reach out to country decision-makers to encourage them to make cancer control a priority
- Jointly assist countries to develop and implement quality cancer plans
- Work within the ICCP to coordinate efforts around development and dissemination of cancer control planning materials and tools, technical assistance and training, and to address data gaps

The ICCP portal is a unique initiative that brings the experience and best practice knowledge of leading cancer organizations and experts and offers policy-makers and cancer planners an online platform, dedicated to providing selected resources and tools on cancer control all in the convenience of ONE PLACE. Launched by the International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP) in November 2013 at the World Cancer Leaders' Summit, the ICCP Portal is a web-based tool on cancer control planning and capacity-building, linked to non-communicable diseases (NCD) control and prevention.
