Global Congress

The Global Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Congress is the most significant event in adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer care.

What is Global Congress?

The Global Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Congress is a major event where speakers from across the globe gather to present sector-leading research on cancer care for young people, helping to improve treatment and care around the world. Congress allows health and social care professionals to network and share information about this specialist area of cancer care, offering opportunities to learn from leading international experts. 

It takes place every two years and is organised on a rotational basis by the AYA Cancer Global Accord, made up of the leading international adolescent and young adult cancer-focussed organisations, Canteen Australia, Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America. 

This year it is being organised by Teen Cancer America and the next event takes place from 20-23 June 2023. The theme of the 2023 Congress is: Real world adolescent and young adult cancer care: progress and opportunities.
