The Global Colon Cancer Association is a global community which enables colorectal cancer (CRC) patient groups worldwide to better serve their communities through sharing information and best practices. We help our member organisations collaborate, innovate and leverage the full potential of effectuating change to support their missions to prevent CRC, support patients and advocate for access. The GCCA also supports the creation of patient advocacy groups in developing areas which have no CRC organisations. The GCCA unites all stakeholders in the battle against this disease with one unified voice.
GCCA will effectively address the issues and provide information surrounding colorectal cancer to clinicians, patients and caregivers across the globe.
The Global Colon Cancer Association has three core values based on:
Sharing - Learning - Growing
The goal of the alliance is to provide a worldwide platform that brings together existing organisations and to support the development of new colorectal cancer groups.
By creating such a platform, the Global Colon Cancer Alliance will be able to better unite people from all corners of the world in the fight against colon cancer and to effectively increase awareness, diagnosis and treatment of a disease that kills more than 600,000 people worldwide annually.
