World Cancer Day 2020

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

World Cancer Day theme: I Am And I Will

This World Cancer Day, we recognise that our commitment to act will lead to powerful progress in reducing the global impact of cancer.


So, this 4 February whoever you are, your actions - big and small -will make lasting, positive change. Because, progress is possible.

We need your commitment to create a cancer-free world. 
This World Cancer Day, who are you and what will you do?

The theme: 2019 - 2021

2020 marks the midway point of the 3-year ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign. ‘I Am and I Will’ is an empowering call-to-action urging for personal commitment and represents the power of individual action taken now to impact the future.
