International Gynecologic Cancer Advocacy Network
Our mission is to create and sustain a broad Network of organizations and individuals that work collaboratively—in sisterhood—“to enhance the care of women with gynecologic cancers worldwide,” with the core value that every woman under every circumstance deserves and must receive the best possible quality of care and quality of life, resulting in best outcomes.

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.

Cervical Cancer Awareness
Throughout the Month of January, we observe Cervical Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) as a time to raise awareness of the problem, highlight our offerings contributing to the solution, and magnify our support of the World Health Organization (WHO) global strategy to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem.
We are thrilled to announce the recipients of the inaugural funding cycle of the Dicey Scroggins Fund for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Gynecologic Cancer Patient Outreach. The fund was established to support innovative projects fostering inclusivity and addressing disparities in gynecologic cancer patient outreach and care. In this first year, it will support three outstanding initiatives.
Uterine Cancer Awareness
The International Gynecologic Cancer Society and its patient advocacy arm, the International Gynecologic Cancer Advocacy Network (IGCAN) with support from patient advocacy organizations around the world have decided that it’s time for a global effort to raise awareness of uterine cancer.
“The health of women forecasts the health, strength, and resilience of communities, and…improving gynecologic cancer care and women’s overall health—thus the health of their communities—[can be achieved] through synergistic global outreach and engagement. The opportunities are boundless.”
