This global event takes place every year on 4 February, World Cancer Day unites the world's population in the fight against cancer.

It aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action.

  • Currently 8.8 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years)
  • World Cancer Day is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people's minds and in the world's media

The good news is that approximately 40% of cancers are potentially preventable.
