World Cancer Day - Careers

On the 4th of February is World Cancer Day, which is a global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control. By raising worldwide awareness, improving education and catalysing personal, collective and government action, we are all working together to reimagine a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are saved and access to life-saving cancer treatment and care is equitable for all - no matter who you are or where you live.

This year's theme for World Cancer Day is 'Close the Care Gap'. It is all about making sure our leaders know that we demand a commitment to prioritising cancer, to creating innovative strategies designed to confront inequity, and to investing our resources to achieve a just and cancer-free world.
