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 will work together on identified priorities to maximize their collective resources and avoid duplication of effort.

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 voluntary goal within the Global Monitoring Framework on NCDs and the WHO Global NCDs Action Plan 2013-2020: a 25% reduction in premature mortality from non-communicable diseases (cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases) by 2025.
