The international community needs to make adequate space for cancer in training programmes for physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals, especially those involved in geriatrics. More emphasis on the principles of cancer care and follow-up is required in the graduate and post-graduate continuing education of every physician. Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG3) provide the foundations to address the societal challenges related to cancer amongst the ageing populations. More needs to be achieved. Convened in Manila, Philippines on May 15th2019,the SIOG Policy Meeting 2019 will feature a collection of high-level networking and engagement opportunities for leaders. As part of a wider global consultation for the next edition of the SIOG 10 Priorities Initiative, the meeting will bring together experts for a multi-stakeholder stocktaking on progress towards the achievement of UHC2030 with a primary focus on the health workforce development for the ageing population with cancer.
