World Cancer Day - February 4



What is World Cancer Day?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 17 people die every minute due to cancer. This is why the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) created and established World Cancer Day in 2000 as an opportunity to raise awareness about this disease and to end the injustice of suffering from cancer. World Cancer Day is a worldwide event that is celebrated annually on the 4th of February, wherein the main objective is to educate the general public, whether it be local or international, about the different kinds of cancer and how to prevent, detect, and treat it. This is all possible due to the collective collaboration of researchers, citizens, businesses, government officials and non-profit organizations who work hand-in-hand to make World Cancer Day successful every year.

Every year there is a different theme that unites all organizers around the world, for 2020 the theme is ‘I Am and I Will’, which voices out the belief that the commitment to act through positive actions and accepting the help of those who have a similar belief will help us reach the goal of lessening the number of premature cancer deaths and noncommunicable diseases by one-third of 2030.

How to celebrate World Cancer Day?

Traditional methods such as television, radio, newspaper and now even online social media advertisements and articles are still effective in raising awareness and calling out to fight against cancer, but interacting with people who care for the cause makes it more personal and effective. Nationwide campaigns and even sit-down meetings and events, as well as public information booths, are immensely necessary in encouraging others to join and find ways to ease the global burden of cancer.
