World Cancer Day 4th February 2021
World Cancer Day is led by the UICC, the Union for International Cancer Control. Cancer Research UK is one of its thousand members from across 172 countries, and we also sit on the board. World Cancer Day is one singular initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fights against the global cancer epidemic.
Cancer is a global challenge. In 2018, 18 million people world-wide were diagnosed with cancer. Today, thanks to research, 2 in 4 people in the UK survive their cancer for 10 years or more. The prospects of major advances in tackling cancer have never been greater, and international collaboration and funding are essential in realising these opportunities. By doing this Cancer Research UK can transform the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, benefitting people with the disease both here in the UK and around the world.
