World Cancer Day 2024 Equity Report

Second edition 2024

Addressing health inequities to close the care gap

As individuals and organisations in countries around the globe join forces for World Cancer Day, the central theme of the campaign, ‘Close the Care Gap,’ is more relevant than ever.

This campaign theme is not just a slogan; it’s a commitment to action. Cancer touches lives indiscriminately, but the level of care that people receive is far from equitable. Over three years, the campaign has focused on raising awareness, encouraging tangible change, making sure that quality health services are accessible to all, irrespective of their personal circumstances.

This vision of a fairer and more equitable world when it comes to health is what we aim to address in this report. Our goal is to bring to light the contrasts in cancer journeys experienced in different geographies and how can we improve access to cancer care and health for all. It’s about putting people and their diverse experiences at the centre of our discussion and our actions.
