2021 World Cancer Day
On World Cancer Day, 4 February 2021, CGFNS International recognizes the important role nurses play, from promoting actions for early detection to providing compassionate care to those affected. Together, all of our actions matter. This World Cancer Day, we recognize that our commitment to act will lead to powerful progress in reducing the global impact of cancer. So, this 4 February whoever you are, your actions – big and small – will make lasting, positive change.
World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the largest and oldest international cancer organisation dedicated to taking the lead in convening, capacity building and advocacy initiatives that unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.For more about how you can participate on World Cancer Day, visit: https://www.worldcancerday.org/take-action
