Dr. Mauricio Maza was chosen as one of 8 Young Leaders for the UICC 2015 World Cancer Leaders’ Summit in Istanbul, Turkey. Dr. Maza joined 250 leaders from government, UN agencies, academia, private sector and civil society to discuss measures needed to improve effective international collaboration. UICC initiated the Young Leaders Programme to award eight individuals with the chance to attend the Summit and add their generation’s viewpoints to the high-level circles.
The summit stimulated dialogue on the need for the global cancer community to increase collaboration and coordination between public and private sectors as well as across country and governmental borders to diminish the global burden of cancer. BHI’s multinational, intersectoral, and collaborative approach to eradicating cervical cancer embodies these ideals.
