Uruguay’s President Honored by International Group Fighting Cancer

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez, an oncologist, is being named an ambassador for Project C/Can 2025 of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) in recognition of his health initiatives and efforts to provide equal care for cancer patients.

UICC president Princess Dina Mired of Jordan will present the title to Vazquez on Thursday at the presidential mansion in Montevideo.

Vazquez and the Jordanian princess will discuss the International Congress on Communicable Diseases scheduled to be held in October in Montevideo, the Office of the President said.

Vazquez participated in the first Multi-Disciplinary Cancer Forum in 2016 and was one of the 90 speakers at this year’s conference.

The forum seeks to prevent or treat cancer by following an egalitarian social approach.

The C/Can 2025: City Cancer Challenge project to be led by Vazquez is a pilot program targeting cities involved in the design, planning and implementation of cancer treatment.

The goal is to improve citizens’ health and reduce inequality in access to cancer treatment.

The first three “pilot cities” selected in January 2017 were Asuncion, Paraguay, Cali, Colombia, and Yangon, Myanmar.
