FB IMG 1454615544675World Cancer Day is marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration, written in 2008. The primary goal of the World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020.
2016 World Cancer Day taking place under the theme ‘We can. I can.’, World Cancer Day 2016-2018, a 3- year campaign for reach and impact will explore how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.
Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, all people have the power to take various actions to reduce the impact that cancer has on individuals, families and communities.
This year World Cancer Day is an opportunity to collectively examine, measure and access cancer control strategies to identify winning formulas that will accelerate progress. The goal for all of us is to ensure fewer people develop cancer through lifestyle changes and education, more people are successfully treated through early detection and that there is a better quality of life for people during treatment and beyond with less side effects.
