On 16 June 2016, the Korean Cancer Association (KCA) and Union for International Cancer Control-Asia Regional Office (UICC-ARO) organized a joint symposium as part of the official program of the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Korean Cancer Association to discuss the topic 'Cross-boundary Cancer Studies: Cancer and Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Asia.' Universal Health Coverage is included in the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The objectives of UHC are to ensure that all people can receive high-quality medical services, are protected from public health risks, and are prevented from falling into poverty due to medical costs or loss of income arising from illness. The participants discussed the growing cost of cancer in the Asian region and the challenges that this poses to the establishment and deployment of UHC in the countries of Asia, all of which face budgetary and other systemic constraints in controlling cancer in the region. Representatives from Korea, Japan and Indonesia reported on the status of UHC in their countries and the challenges that are being faced, many of which are common to other countries in Asia. In addition to country-specific presentations about the progress of and challenges facing UHC, there were also presentations from WHO Kobe Centre concerning advancing UHC in non-communicable diseases and prospects for further collaboration and research on UHC. A presentation from the University of Tokyo also highlighted the need to focus on multidisciplinary studies in an age of globalization and digitization.
