In parallel to targeted local and regional activities, one of our focus areas is to convene members, partners and leaders to encourage collaboration and new thinking.
World Cancer Day is the one singular initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic. It takes place every year on 4 February.
A biennial event, the World Cancer Congress serves as a platform for discourse and advocacy as well as a learning and sharing opportunity for our members and partners around the world.
Get up to speed with all the news for the 2020 World Cancer Day Campaign and get some tips from two of our member organisations on how to best prepare your involvement in the day.
"It was a wonderful experience for us (staff and students at CPUT) and we have learnt a lot about how to offer such activities in the future. We received very positive feedback and the activities were a success in many aspects...You will see that we used the World Cancer Day materials - sincere thanks for that.”
“The 2018 World Cancer Congress enabled the cancer community to develop new collaborations, share practical case studies and learn from top experts in all aspects of cancer control. We were able to share knowledge and interact with colleagues from around the world, gaining new perspectives on what we, as a community, can do to reduce the cancer burden over time.”
