The Global Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Congress Series

In 2015, Canteen Australia, UK’s Teenage Cancer Trust, and Teen Cancer America, formed the AYA Cancer Global Accord Alliance. The aim of the Alliance is to invest and support a growing global multidisciplinary workforce who are committed to improving the lives of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) diagnosed with cancer. 

A key focus of this partnership is the annual Global AYA Cancer Congress Series which is the world’s most significant gathering of medical professionals and advocates in AYA cancer care.

Together, the Alliance has created an international Congress where speakers from across the globe gather to present sector-leading research on cancer care and treatment for young people.

This Congress is a key forum for advancing AYA cancer care and treatment for over 400 professionals, encompassing medical, nursing, allied health, and psychosocial care experts, alongside AYA consumers and  AYA patient advocates.

Delegates have a unique opportunity to learn from leading international experts, share research and care practices, and connect to a worldwide network that is focused on improving cancer care and outcomes for this unique population of young people.

The 2024 edition, Ethics, Equity, and Emerging Ideas will focus on addressing progress and challenges in equitable access, ethical considerations in cancer treatment and practices, innovation, and implementation across the AYA cancer care continuum.   


The multitrack program will provide delegates with a space to learn from leading international experts about current trends, challenges and how to drive improvements in the care of AYAs with cancer.


An opportunity to connect with a global network that is focused on improving cancer care and outcomes for AYAs.


Learn and be inspired by international experts on the latest research, trends, and innovations within AYA cancer care. 


Young people with cancer are at the heart of everything we do. We strive for excellence in improving health outcomes for this unique population.
