World Cancer Day 2012: Together it is possible

World Cancer Day takes place every year on 4 February and is the singular initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic. World Cancer Day 2012 is particularly important as it falls almost half a year after the first UN High-level Meeting on Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs), and the signing of the Political Declaration supporting prevention and control of these devastating conditions, including cancer.

World Cancer Day 2012 has been themed ’Together it is possible’ because it is only by every person, organisation, government individually doing their part that the world will be able to reduce premature deaths from cancer and other NCDs by 25% by 2025. Therefore, aligning under the banner of ’Together it is possible’; UICC would like you to support us in using this upcoming milestone to encourage everyone affected by cancer (individuals, civil societies and governments), to ensure that they take responsibility for reducing the burden of this disease.
