About this event
World Cancer Day is an international day to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment.
This year's World Cancer Day's theme is 'I Am and I Will'. It's about how through positive actions, we can reach the target of reducing the number of premature deaths from cancer and noncommunicable diseases by one third by 2030.
