World Cancer Day 2021

Created in 2000 to be held every February 4, World Cancer Day is a global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to face one of our greatest challenges.

Campaign theme: I Am and I Will / Together, all our actions matter

2021—the ultimate year of the ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign—shows us that our actions have an impact on everyone around us, within our neighborhoods, communities, and cities. And that more than ever, our actions are also being felt across borders and oceans. This year is a reminder of the enduring power of cooperation and collective action. When we choose to come together, we can achieve what we all wish for: a healthier, brighter world without cancer. Together, all of our actions matter. This World Cancer Day, who are you and what will you do?
