Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, Founder and Royal Patron of the Friends of Cancer Patients Society (FoCP), International Ambassador of the World Cancer Declaration for Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), and International Ambassador for Childhood Cancer for UICC, has called for prioritising and intensifying scientific research and data sharing about cancer between government and civil organisations worldwide to enhance the role of public health programmes in cancer prevention and early detection.
The call was made by Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi during her participation in the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit, which recently concluded in Istanbul, Turkey, where she highlighted the need to set priorities for cancer research and strengthen cooperation between government and civil organisations and the importance of collaboration across country borders, across diseases and through public and private partnerships.
The summit focused on the basic needs of healthcare for cancer patients and providing the necessary data for cancer control, highlighting successful examples of national cancer control planning and cross-diseases interventions, as well as issues related to the management of conflict of interest, data sharing and international policy development.
