The Union for International Cancer Control Asia Regional Office (UICC-ARO) was established in 2006 as the first regional office of the UICC with the support of the UICC President at the time, Dr. Franco Cavalli, and following the approval of the UICC Board of Directors. UICC-ARO supports the further development and activation of the UICC movement in Asia and aims to promote activities that strengthen cooperation and collaboration among organizations that are working to overcome cancer in Asia. Our action plan includes activities to widen understanding in the Asian region about the work of the UICC. To that end we are working to promote and widen networks of individuals and organizations in Asia and involve them in UICC-ARO activities. As director of UICC-ARO, I believe that in order to raise the level of cancer treatment in Asia, we must not only concentrate on the medical nature of the disease, but also take a more macro perspective that takes into account the social determinants of cancer in Asia, including social structures, culture and economy. In the field of medical sociology, economic and social conditions have come to be widely considered as factors that determine people’s health, otherwise known as social determinants of health (SDH). As can be seen in Target 01 and 07 of the World Cancer Declaration of the UICC, the principles and objectives of the UICC are also in alignment with efforts to realise UHC. The theme of the World Cancer Congress in Paris in 2016, "Mobilising Action-Inspiring Change," provides an ideal platform to engage in further discussion on how to mobilise action towards the realisation of UHC in Asia. ARO compiled significant outcomes at the 2014 WCC in Melbourne during our program aimed at realising UHC for cancer in Asia. In the coming forum of the WCC in Paris in 2016 we seek to engage in further discussion on the important theme of UHC and deepen shared recognition of the issues in Asia.
