February 4, 2014

WALDENBURG, GERMANY--Würth Elektronik eiSos, a European manufacturer of passive components, is supporting the UICC the leading cancer-fighting organization worldwide.  For every reference design that Würth Elektronik eiSos wins in 2014, the company will donate $40 to UICC. For every reference design for which Würth Elektronik eiSos is registered as the second source, $20 will be donated. Last year, Würth Elektronik eiSos won, or was appointed as second source, for several hundred designs. This means that UICC is set to receive a large donation, to be invested into UICCs flagship fellowship program, which has been running successfully for more than 50 years. “A robust and connected health workforce to deliver cancer control services from health promotion to early detection, diagnosis, treatment and care at all levels, in the community and at primary, referral and specialist hospitals is key to reducing the cancer burden”, said Julie Torode, deputy CEO and director of Advocacy and Programs at UICC. "UICC fellowships and workshops aim to give caretakers for cancer patients new skills and accelerate change by building research capacity, fostering international collaborations and enabling knowledge transfer.”
