HRH Princess Dina Mired of Jordan, former president of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), will deliver the opening address at the 6th Southeast Asia Breast Cancer Symposium (SEABCS) to be held online from September 23-25, 2022.

A mother of a cancer survivor, HRH Princess Dina served as UICC president from 2018-2020. She was the first Arab Muslim to have been elected to such a prestigious global post. Based in Geneva, Switzerland, UICC is a non-governmental organization counting 1,180 member organizations in more than 170 countries.

HRH Princess Dina is a leading national and global figure in advocacy work on behalf of cancer patients and their families. She established and led the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) from 2002 until June 2016. Princess Dina transformed the non-profit into a brand known not only in Jordan, but also in the global movement for people affected by cancer.

Philippines-based ICANSERVE Foundation, Inc. and U.S.-based Global Focus on Cancer host this year’s SEABCS previously held in Vietnam (2016), Myanmar (2017), Malaysia (2018), Thailand (2019), and Indonesia (2021- virtual conference). This is the first time that a patient advocacy group will host such a regional conference. It had been hosted by medical societies in the host countries of earlier years.

With the support of the American Society of Clinical Oncology or ASCO and UICC, the SEABCS is open to all with topics that appeal to various stakeholders—doctors, caregivers, patient advocates, and cancer survivors at any point in their journey.
