World Cancer Day in
Days to go:
World Cancer Day is a significant global health observance, organised by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). Its aim is to raise awareness about cancer, so as to prompt positive action for prevention, early detection, and timely treatment of this pervasive disease. This health event accentuates the essence of global unity in the fight against cancer. With the mission, “We can. I can", it highlights each individual’s role in reducing the global burden of cancer. It encourages all to understand that our daily lifestyle choices can contribute substantially to the prevention of cancer.
To contextualize the history and relevance of World Cancer Day to the European Union (EU), it's worth mentioning that it was established in 2000 at the World Summit Against Cancer held in Paris. Cancer represents a significant health challenge within the EU, with approximately 3.5 million new cases and 1.3 million deaths reported annually. Therefore, World Cancer Day embodies an essential platform for EU to spur opportunities for dialogue, propagate knowledge on cancer risks, and above all, advocate for effective policies and programs.
Within the EU, World Cancer Day campaigns are widely supported by various nonprofits, research centres, public health authorities and initiatives such as the "Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan". Events including educational seminars, fundraising activities, free screenings and public marches are held across member states aiming to inform and engage citizens in cancer prevention and control. Campaigns focus on making lifestyle changes, the importance of early detection, and advocating for equitable access to cancer services. World Cancer Day takes place every year on the 4th of February, harboring an increased resonance for a concerted, collective action within the EU to combat cancer.
