Founded in 1933 and based in Geneva, Switzerland, the Union for International Cancer Control's (UICC) is the largest and oldest international organisation in the fight against cancer. The UICC has more than 1,000 members and 56 partners in 162 countries. The organisation represents leading cancer associations, ministries of health, research institutes, clinics, patient groups and industry leaders around the world.

The organisation is dedicated to taking the lead in convening, capacity building and advocacy initiatives that unite and support the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and to ensure cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda. 

UICC contacted Inovae to create the new website for the organisation. Very committed to the work of NGOs, the agency is always happy to engage to help them in their mission to create a better world and it is therefore with great pride that we have supported UICC in this project.

The objective of this mandate was to design a solution that would allow a remarkable user experience, while preserving the editing flexibility that the organisation needed to bring the site and its news to life.
