World Cancer Day

On February 4th, World Cancer Day is observed globally, with the objective of enhancing awareness about cancer and promoting its prevention, detection, and treatment.

The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) spearheads World Cancer Day in alignment with the goals outlined in the World Cancer Declaration of 2008. The day strives to prevent millions of deaths annually by fostering awareness and education regarding cancer. Additionally, it concentrates on examining the socioeconomic factors contributing to disparities in cancer prevention, incidence, and survival. These factors encompass cultural and gender norms, income and education levels, as well as biases related to age, gender, ethnicity, disability, and lifestyle.
