HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 31 January 2020 – World Cancer Day is an initiative that unites
the global community and highlights efforts worldwide to reduce the cancer burden,
promote greater equity and integrate control of the disease into the international
health and development agenda.

 

At the start of the
millennium, 4 February was declared World Cancer Day. It began with cancer
experts who convened in Paris in 1999. With the year 2000 imminent, the group
was determined that the global challenge of cancer not be forgotten in the new
century.

The World Cancer Day Charter
has now been adopted by over 1,100 international cancer organisations around
the world, including the Asian Fund for Cancer Research (AFCR). Under the
guidance of the Union for International Cancer Control since 2006, World Cancer
Day has grown into a positive movement for everyone, everywhere to unite under
one voice, building an alliance against “fear,
ignorance and complacency.

 

Since the
creation of World Cancer Day, incredible progress has been made against the
disease in many areas, including increased political will, technological
advancements, research breakthroughs and greater public understanding of the
disease. However, there is still much more to be done. Indeed, in 2019 the World
Health Organization cited non-communicable diseases, including cancer, as one
of the top ten threats to global public health.

This year
4 February marks the 20th anniversary of World Cancer Day. It will be a year to
accelerate the reduction of unnecessary cancer deaths and to achieve equal
access to cancer care for all. Actions, big and small, to combat cancer will
lead to powerful progress in reducing the global impact of the disease.


Every
individual and organization can commit and make a difference toward the creation
of a cancer-free world.
