3rd Global Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Congress
What is the Global Accord?

In 2015, the leading international adolescent and young adult cancer-focussed organisations, CanTeen Australia, The Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America, formed the AYA Cancer Global Accord to support a global approach to improving AYA cancer outcome.

A key focus of this partnership is the Annual Global AYA Cancer Congress Series, hosted on a rotating basis by the foundational partner organisations.
This brings together elements of previous national conferences hosted by CanTeen and Teenage Cancer Trust with a remit to showcase international developments and challenges in the care of the more than 1,000,000 AYAs diagnosed each year around the world.

The development - to create the first truly global event in AYA cancer - is in recognition that awareness and concern regarding the problem and the uniqueness of cancer in adolescents and young adults is becoming more and more universal.

The Global Accord has also begun supporting international research collaboration through the provision of seed funding for international psychosocial research and will explore international advocacy opportunities, including addressing the global challenges of AYA clinical trials access.

The Sydney event will be the third gathering in the Global AYA Cancer Congress series. To find out more about the previous two Congresses in this series, click on the links below:
