APOCP/APJCP Questionnaire Points for Discussion at the First APOCP General Conference - Is an Asian PacificOrganization for Cancer Contr


With almost three years of experience behind the Asian Pacific Organization for Cancer Prevention, there is agreat deal which needs to be discussed at the First APOCP General Conference to be held in Nagoya, Central Japan, in October of this year. The program, as can be seen from the Meetings section of the present issue, includes time for decisions to be made regarding the future of the APOCP and how to ensure that the journal continues to provide a service to the Asian Pacific research community, assuming this is still the wish of the members. The present explanation/questionnaire will hopefully facilitate this purpose while canvasing for the ideas of scientists active in cancer control regarding setting up a sister organization and journal, the APOCT/APJCT, with the T standing for Treatment.. One possibility is that this should be established under the auspices of the Asian Pacific Federation of Organizations for Cancer Control (APFOCC). Your cooperation in providing answers to the questions listed in the included questionnaire is essential for success
