World Cancer Day 2019

Monday, February 4, 2019


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.


Whoever you are, you have the power to reduce the impact of cancer for yourself, the people you love and for the world.
It’s time to make a personal commitment.

The theme: 2019 - 2021

2019 marks the launch 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.
