World Cancer Day, early detection is key!

On the 22nd anniversary of World Cancer Day (4 February 2022), CANSA and Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), challenge individuals to make a personal commitment to lower the impact of cancer for themselves, the people they love and the world.
Every year 9.6 million people die from cancer globally.
In 2018, an estimated 107 467 new cases of cancer in South Africa occurred.
Non-communicable diseases, including cancer, are one of the World Health Organization’s ‘ten threats to global health’.

There are risk reducing measures for at least one third of common cancers. This means that up to 3.7 million lives globally could be saved each year through sharing of knowledge.
Each person is connected to others in a unique way with a sphere of influence. So use your voices in your communities to raise awareness of cancer, improve knowledge of cancer and lowering risk by improving lifestyle and going for screening.
Cancer affects us all and we have the power to make change for a cancer-free world.
