World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition (WBCPC)
The World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition (WBCPC) was established in January 2019 by a group of dedicated patient advocates from three major national bladder cancer organisations that saw the need for a global bladder cancer coalition. This coalition symbolises the first time that people affected by bladder cancer have a force connecting bladder cancer patients, groups, and organisations worldwide.
The WBCPC now brings together eleven patient groups from four continents, uniting the vision and goals of bladder cancer patient groups to ensure the best possible outcomes for bladder cancer patients around the world.
The mission of the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition is to:
- Foster an international community of people affected by bladder cancer
- Advocate for access to the best possible bladder cancer information, support, and care
- Build alliances with health professionals, policy makers, researchers, academics, and industry
