Message from our Director

Hideyuki Akaza, M.D.

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. From its establishment until 2012, UICC-ARO was headed by Dr. Malcolm A. Moore. Following Dr. Moore’s desire to concentrate his activities exclusively on editing of the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention (APJCP), I have succeeded him as director of UICC-ARO.
