Today is World Cancer Day! This year the focus of World Cancer Day is 'closing the care gap', looking at the inequalities in treatment outcomes and difference in survival rates around the world.
The event organisers, UICC, said "Access to life-saving cancer diagnosis, treatment and care should be equitable for all – no matter where you live, what your income, your ethnicity or gender".
World Cancer Day is organised by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), it is aimed at raising awareness on cancer topics and creating a positive movement to bring about change.
There are some excellent webinars and activites throughout the day and over the coming weeks, so make sure you check out the webinars and podcasts (at the World Cancer Day website) and get involved in this global movement for change.
