Oman Creates History at Union for International Cancer Control

The aphorism ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’ applies here, as Oman went on to make history in the GCC, when Dr. Wahid al Kharusi, the chairman of the Oman Cancer Association (OCA), was elected an official board member of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).



This should strengthen the organisation’s goal to spread cancer awareness and improve treatments in the country, and moreover, aid more scholars and experts in the field to visit the Sultanate.

The elections and the subsequent announcement were made at the ‘World Cancer Leaders’ Summit 2018‘ at Kuala Lampur.

It must also be noted that the World Cancer Leaders’ Summit 2020′ will take place in Oman.
