Human Security

The Asia Cancer Forum has been engaging with the global health community to share information about the current challenges for cancer in developing countries and to discuss future trends. Discussions also focus on how we can enhance communication and cooperate in improving the global health status.

It is our intention to position our agenda as an item to be included within the next Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the United Nations.

The starting point of the debates within the Asia Cancer Forum is the concept of human security. Based on the concept of human security, we are discussing the following questions: What should we do to achieve this goal? And, further, what items should be added to the revised MDGs?
