World Cancer Day 2021

1 February 2021

Share This Story:

World cancer day takes place every year on the 4th February. It is an initiative from the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) which is the oldest and largest international cancer organisation, dedicated to uniting the cancer community to reduce the global burden of the disease. The UICC focus on promoting greater equality and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

At the core of the UICC’s agenda is the belief that everyone, no matter their ethnicity, gender, income or where you live in the world, should have the same access to life saving cancer diagnosis, treatment and care.

World Cancer Day theme: I Am and I Will

The UICC has been running a three year campaign which focuses on creating long-lasting impact by increasing public-facing exposure and engagement, as well as creating more opportunities to build global awareness and impact-driven action.

2021 marks the final year of the ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign with the theme of ‘Together, all our actions matter’, which shows that whoever you are, your actions – big and small – will make lasting, positive change.
