World Cancer Day 2020

World Cancer Day

I am and I will

Today, on World Cancer Day 2020, cancer is one of the most important health and human issues. Cancer is the reason behind the death of 9.6 million people annually in the world, making it the second most deadly disease in the world, while it is possible to prevent at least one-third of the cases.

The fourth day of February of each year marks the World Cancer Day to enable institutions, societies, and individuals all over the world to show their support for cancer patients in their struggle against the disease and to call for collective action, as well as impose pressure on governments to take all possible measures to combat the disease.

On World Cancer Day 2020 this year, we ask you personally to contribute to taking positive steps to combat cancer. We are certain that we can achieve the global goal of reducing early mortality from cancer and non-communicable diseases by 25% if we start working soon.

Join us on February 4 to claim a world less affected by cancer.

On World Cancer Day this year, who are you and what will you do?


Do you know that?

  • 6 million people die annually from cancer, and the number is to rise to double by the year 2030.
