Policy and Advocacy Committee
The purpose of the Policy and Advocacy Committee is to educate oncology nurses about health policy and
cancer control, how to influence these policies, and how to advocate for change in their country. The
activities of the Policy and Advocacy Committee support ISNCC's strategic goals to influence health policy and cancer control awareness internationally and to develop partnerships and build coalitions that advance (or advocate for) the care of people at risk for or living with cancer.

The policy portfolio will support ISNCC's strategic goals to develop alliances and partnerships with
international nursing organizations which have a commitment to health policy advocacy, international cancer organizations, health-care providers, international patient advocacy groups, and other organizations aligned with ISNCC’s strategic goals.
