UICC calls on governments to prevent millions of cancer-related deaths due to tobacco use and the consumption of alcohol and ultra-processed foods, through increased taxation, restricted advertising, improved labelling and public education.
Tuesday 18 January 2022. Geneva, Switzerland.
On 4 February, the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) will launch a new three-year campaign for World Cancer Day that brings together individuals, organisations and governments around the world in an effort to create awareness and help close the gap in cancer care.
The campaign highlights the significant barriers related to socioeconomic factors, stigma and discrimination that prevent many people around the world from accessing life-saving preventive services, diagnostics, treatment and care. These barriers lead to wide discrepancies in the risks of developing and surviving cancer.
“By 2030, it is estimated that 75% of all premature deaths due to cancer will occur in low- and middle-income countries. Importantly, this care gap is not only between high- and low-resource settings. Disparities exist within most countries among different populations due to discrimination or assumptions that encompass age, cultural contexts, gender norms, sexual orientation, ethnicity, income, education levels and lifestyle issues. These factors potentially reduce a person’s chance of surviving cancer – and they can and must be addressed.”
– Prof. Anil d’Cruz, President of the Union for International Cancer Control, Director of Oncology at Apollo Hospitals, India
On World Cancer Day, UICC shines a light on the heroic responses to the pandemic by cancer organisations and individuals around the world struggling to maintain progress in cancer care.
Tuesday 19 January 2021. Geneva, Switzerland.
Marking World Cancer Day on 4th February, the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) gives voice and says thank you to the nurses, doctors, researchers, volunteers, advocates and other caregivers in oncology from around the world, as well as government agencies, who have worked these past 12 months through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The World Cancer Day theme “I Am and I Will” encapsulates their extraordinary spirit and the strength of the cancer community. Their stories captured throughout the past year are being showcased on the occasion of World Cancer Day in testimonies and articles on a dedicated page of the official website. These stories highlight that while the pandemic is threatening the progress being made in the fight against cancer, it has also created the opportunity to address systemic weaknesses in many national health systems.
A survey conducted by UICC with over 100 of its member organisations in 55 countries, including civil society, hospitals, research centres and patient support groups, revealed that their income and organisational activities are under significant pressure, with almost three-quarters reporting reductions in income of anywhere from 25% to 100% in 2020 and similar projections for 2021. An analysis of the survey results were published this month in The Lancet Oncology.
Tuesday 4 February – Today’s World Cancer Day, led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), aims to mobilise urgent action from individuals, governments, and the global cancer community to close the clear and unacceptable gaps in cancer risk awareness between higher and lower socioeconomic groups and the subsequent impact on their health-promoting behaviours.
To mark the 20th anniversary of World Cancer Day, UICC commissioned a global survey to form an up-to-date picture of the public’s experiences, views, and behaviours around cancer. Conducted by Ipsos, the survey includes more than 15,000 adults across 20 countries in the first multi-country public survey on cancer perceptions in a decade. The survey’s results, detailed in UICC’s report released today, International Public Opinion Survey on Cancer 2020: What people feel, think and believe about cancer today, indicate a clear divide between higher and lower socioeconomic groups when it comes to knowledge and awareness of cancer risks and, as a result, the practice of behaviours to limit such risk.
Monday 4 February – World Cancer Day 2019 highlights the need for urgent action to increase early stage cancer detection, screening, and diagnosis to significantly improve cancer patients’ chances of survival. Taking place under the theme of ‘I Am and I Will’, today’s World Cancer Day led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), aims to inspire and encourage action from individuals, the health community, and governments to improve public awareness and access to early detection, screening, and diagnosis.
Monday 4 February 2019 – World Cancer Day: Leading musicians have come together for this World Cancer Day – a global awareness raising initiative by the Union for International Cancer Control - joining the global campaign to boost public health awareness and action against cancer. In a bold, emotional and inspiring video montage marking the day, artists including Grammy winner Alessia Cara and TIME 100 Most Influential People of 2018 honouree Shawn Mendes, as well as luminary will.i.am, Billboard’s Hot 100 chart topper Halsey, singer, songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter and Chinese-Canadian superstar Kris Wu share their support and commitment. Cancer survivors Taboo, rapper and member of Black Eyed Peas, and the visionary Nile Rodgers also participate alongside Puerto Rico’s record breaker Luis Fonsi, whose long-time friend and former publicist was diagnosed with breast cancer.
World Cancer Day’s 2019-2021 campaign theme is ‘I Am and I Will’, an empowering call for personal commitment and action taken now to reduce the growing burden of cancer. Kicking off the first year of the new campaign, artists from around the world took the opportunity to show their support by committing to inspire action in their own lives and the lives of those around them.

Saturday 4 February 2017 – World Cancer Day: Geneva, Switzerland - Today, on World Cancer Day, millions are urged to get active to help combat one of the world’s most deadly diseases. Under the banner ‘We can.

Thursday 4 February 2016 – World Cancer Day: Geneva, Switzerland – Cancer will kill more than eight million people worldwide this year, which is equivalent to the entire population of New York. Half of these will be people of working age (30-69 years old).
Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death, and its burden is growing. In 2021, the world crossed a sobering new threshold – an estimated 20 million people were diagnosed with cancer, and 10 million died. These numbers will continue to rise in the decades ahead. And yet all cancers can be treated, and many can be prevented or cured.
Care for cancer, however, like so many other diseases, reflects the inequalities and inequities of our world. The clearest distinction is between high- and low-income countries, with comprehensive treatment reportedly available in more than 90% of high-income countries but less than 15% of low-income countries.
1 February 2022, Sydney Australia: In the lead up to World Cancer Day, advocacy group All.Can Australia is encouraging a shift to broader cancer care navigation to ensure more Australians receive support as they navigate the health system following a diagnosis of cancer, regardless of their cancer type.

On World Cancer Day: ReAct highlights why effective antibiotics are essential for modern cancer care Patients with cancer rely on effective antibiotics as they undergo cancer treatment. Infections are one of the most common complications cancer patients experience, and it is not uncommon that multiple courses of antibiotics are needed while cancer treatment is ongoing. Antibiotics are also used preventively to avoid infections after surgeries and when patients’ immune systems are weak; for example when undergoing chemotherapy. As such, effective antibiotics are a cornerstone of modern cancer care.
