President's Message: World Cancer Day

February 4th is World Cancer Day – a day when the world unites to raise awareness of key issues and build or strengthen coalitions for global cancer control. Read IGCS President, Dr. Keiichi Fujiwara’s Presidential Message.


Stop Cervical Cancer

IGCS Members have the extinction of cervical cancer in their sights, aiming to eradicate the disease by training a multitude of specialists armed with the knowledge to prevent, treat, and spread this live-saving information worldwide. Through the IGCS’ mentorship and training programs, we’ve been able to formalize a training curriculum to do just that.

Survivor/Caregiver/Patient Advocate Account

This “advocate member” account is meant for survivors, caregivers, and others who identify as patient advocates but do not fit into the other account categories on the IGCS membership page. Create an account with this category if you only want to join the International Gynecologic Cancer Advocacy Network (IGCAN) and receive email messages from IGCAN. Patient education is always free, but advocate accounts do not have access to clinical, members-only education and resources.
