4th february: World Cancer Day

World Day 2021

; annually observed on February 4, which aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding the disease, which is the second leading cause of death worldwide.

  • Each year, February 4 is celebrated as World Cancer Day to raise awareness about cancer and reduce the stigma surrounding the disease, which is the second leading cause of death worldwide.
  • This international day is a “global trade union initiative” led by the International Union for the Fight against Cancer (UICC) and aims to promote the prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer as soon as possible.
  • World Cancer Day was first established at the World Cancer Summit for the New Millennium, held in Paris on February 4, 2000. This day celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the “Charter of Paris against cancer” by the Director-General of UNESCO, Kōichirō Matsuura and French President Jacques Chirac.
  • The celebration of World Cancer Day aims to reduce the global impact of cancer and support cancer patients and survivors by catalyzing personal, collective and government action.
  • World Cancer Day also focuses on misinformation and cancer stigma. In India the most common types of cancer are breast, mouth, cervical, lung, stomach and colorectal cancers, so it is imperative to provide people with the correct information and timely medical care.
  • As a day observed by the United Nations, World Cancer Day aims to unite the international community to support those affected by cancer and also calls on all citizens of the world to take action against this disease.
  • Since its inception, World Cancer Day has been celebrated taking into account certain themes that would guide the agenda of celebrations and campaigns.
  • In 2019, the theme “I am and I will do” was introduced and will continue until 2021.
  • This multi-year campaign focused on the community as a whole and the actions that each individual can take to reduce the impact global from cancer.
  • According to the World Cancer Day website, the main goal is to focus on positive actions to achieve “the goal of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and noncommunicable diseases by a third by 2030”.
