The 7th NCID meeting in Lyon

May 22, 2012

The seventh meeting of National Cancer Institute Directors will take place in Lyon between 11th and 13th July, 2012.

The previous meeting attracted 85 participants from 45 countries at varying levels of income and resource. The 2012 meeting has already attracted a great deal of interest and several projects initiated at our last meeting have come to fruition and the results will be presented this year.

As requested by participants, the focus on cancer care will continue to increase with the sharing of experience in a wide variety of resource settings underlined. Highlights this year will include: the launch of the World Breast Cancer Report; presentation of the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative; a discussion of how to treat women with breast cancer and diabetes; presentation of the Bayt Abdullah initiative; a roundtable on the Value of Cancer Care for Society; presentation of current status and issues in population screening; and discussion of the need to reassess outcomes in clinical trials of cancer therapy.

A limited number of attendees could still be accommodated. Further details can be obtained by contacting the secretariat at
