About Us

Our history

Pancreatic cancer patient advocacy organizations from around the world came together in 2013 to discuss working together to raise global pancreatic cancer awareness and work collaboratively to support each other’s efforts.

We realized that by working collaboratively, we could have a much greater impact than the sum of our parts. So we swiftly moved to action with the launch of the inaugural World Pancreatic Cancer Day in 2014.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day quickly became a global success. Each year, outreach, visibility, and engagement continue to grow across the world.

Because of its success, we decided to take our efforts one step further and launch a formal World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition in 2016 with more than 40 organizations from over 20 countries across the globe.

We now have more than 70 organizations from over 30 countries on six continents.

Our 2016 WPCC Survey highlighted the wide range of activities that our members are involved in. The following presentation from our 2017 Annual Meeting in Montreal provides an overview of the survey findings.
